Registry Stats


The Cabriolet Registry is the largest collection of Cabriolet/Rabbit Convertible data outside of the Volkswagen/Karmann factory archives. It is an ongoing database with the goal of providing a complete listing of Cabriolet chassis numbers that are still in existence, or are known to no longer be living.  This database also includes a breakdown of models, colors, and transmission types (manuals are by far the most common!).  Take a look to see if your (or one you see on the street, in a junkyard, etc.) Cabriolet/Rabbit Convertible is listed; if not, please submit its details!


Don't see your car after the last update?


There was conflicting information submitted and, therefore, your car was not entered into the Registry. Please resubmit your car, paying close attention to the model year (not first registration year!). Refer to the instructions.

Cabriolet Registry Submission Form

* Required information:


For those concerned about security, be assured that without the entire 17-digit (or 10-digit for '79/'80) VIN, no one can look up information about your specific car, or about you personally. Photos submitted with visible license plates: those plates will be blocked/blurred out. Additionally, cities will not be posted, even if you submit them. Registry submissions are entered manually as time allows (about once every 3 months).
