1978 Volkswagen Dasher wagon

Classics  /   /  By Tony Piff  /  By Tony Piff

When’s the last time you saw a decent Volkswagen Dasher running around town? Most of these cars were used up long ago, so finding one in excellent original condition is next to impossible. But that’s exactly what we have here: this ’78 Dasher is reportedly fresh out of 20 years of storage, and it’s said to run and drive “excellent” following recent service. And those 22k indicated miles might be actual.

The car is being offered without reserve. It’s remarkably shiny, straight, and complete on the outside, and the interior looks practically unworn. Those boxy, angular lines, quad round headlights, and beige-yellow paint just scream early 1980s—if you want a commuter wagon from the Reagan era, try finding another one that’s better.

Cars from the 1980s are still generally laying flat in terms of value, but if you’re looking to turn heads at the next Volkswagen meet without spending a lot of cash, this could be just the ticket. Check out the listing here.
