The Volkswagen Dasher was a rebadging of the popular Passat, which has been manufactured since 1973. Through six generations, the Passat has been a reliable seller in the mid-sized segment throughout the world. The name Dasher did not last long in the U.S. before the name Passat took over, but it was introduced to the market in 1974. The Dasher sold in North America as a three-door hatchback, a five-door hatchback, and a station wagon. Today, these early Passats, badged as Dashers, are hard-to-find collector’s items.
