The Volkswagen Caddy, released in 1979 as the Volkswagen Rabbit pickup for the North American truck market to compete with the Subaru Brat, a similarly-sized vehicle available at the same time. Interestingly, the name Volkswagen Caddy was only used outside of the North American market. The Hot Wheels casting is based on the European-market variant manufactured between 1982-1984, as the "Caddy" nameplate was not introduced until 1982 and that specific nameplate was never used in the North American market. In the back of the bed there is an upside down skateboard.
