The Craziest VW Barn Find?! Taxi MK1 Prototype

Published in Video

While at Waterfest 25 in Atco NJ, we spotted something at Jamie Orr's Booth that was odd. At first it looked like a regular MK1 Rabbit. but as we got close we quickly realized it was something much different. Turned out Jamie had just completed a 24 hour road trip to go pull this piece of history out a warehouse where it had set for the last 30 years. He explained how it was prototype from a collaboration from Checker Motors and Volkswagen to make a Taxi for consumers in the USA. The car turned out to be non viable and the prototype was lost for years. The only extended MK1 swallow tail ever made. 1 of 1. In Jamie's hands this car will be brought back to its former glory!
