Volkswagen Rabbit and Volkswagen Cabriolet Restoration Parts

M&T Manufacturing has been manufacturing and selling VW restoration parts for over 40 years. We carry all VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet parts that are available in the VW "aftermarket." It is unfortunate that many VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet parts are not being reproduced. As VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet parts become available we will find and list them on this VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet web page.

The first Volkswagen Rabbit was made in 1975. There have been changes along the way: the VW Rabbit convertible was first the VW "Wolfsburg Special" and then the VW Cabriolet, then the VW Cabrio. The Rabbit or Cabriolet convertible top and convertible top frame were unchanded from 1979 to 1994. However the frame seals for the VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet, are of needlessly complex design, and Volkswagen Corp. changed them periodically within VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet year/models ! Most VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet seals not being duplicated for the aftermarket. We actively search all sources for replacement VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet parts. The site is actively updated depending on the availability of these parts.

We had specialized in convertible tops and related parts for all Volkswagens and interior upholstery. All of our VW Rabbit, VW Cabriolet and VW Cabrio tops, upholstery and related parts are contained in this on line catalog.

Volkswagen Parts for Over 40 Years

We have been providing Volkswagen (VW) restorers with parts for their classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, Volkswagen Vanagon, VW Rabbit, VW Cabriolet, VW Thing and Volkswagen Type 3 since 1974. We have over forty years in the Volkswagen restoration business! We originated in upholstery and convertible top parts but added VW sedan, body, glass, rubber and other parts.

We still operate the shop in one of our buildings where we manufacture the convertible wood top bows for classic air cooled Volkswagen (VW) Beetle and Karmann Ghia convertibles forty years after we began ! Our main building is a restored ice house in southern Rhode Island. We have added separate warehouses, efficiently linked via our data base of parts for air cooled and water cooled Volkswagen sedans and Volkswagen convertibles. This site lists all of our VW Raabbit and VW Cabriolet parts.

Volkswagen (VW) Convertibles and Sedans:

When we started making Volkswagen (VW) convertible wood top bows the demand for quality VW restoration led us to establish relationships with all Volkswagen parts manufacturers and importers. We came to develop a full line of replacement parts for old Volkswagens, including the VW Rabbit and the VW Cabriolet.

We developed relationships with hundreds of professional and home Volkswagen restorers. The community of Volkswagen (VW) restoration shops and private VW restorers has been invaluable in testing parts, helping us to locate special VW sources for parts and to securing help for all our Volkswagen (VW) owner friends and customers.

Air Cooled and Water Cooled Volkswagens:

Although the Volkswagen (VW) Corporation abandoned its air cooled VW line after 1979, the later water cooled cars, like the Rabbit convertible and VW Cabriolets retained design and engineering quality that helped make the classic Volkswagens special. The Rabbits and Volkswagen (VW) Cabriolets are restoration worthy convertibles and sedans. Their restoration became popular and we added parts for those cars to our Volkswagen parts line.

Ordering Volkswagen (VW) Parts Online:

VW Rabbit and Cabriolet restorers can be confident of a high rate of "in stock" availability of parts for their vintage Volkswagens. Our service to the Volkswagen parts shoppers has been our hallmark since we started operating.

Our Volkswagen 'paper catalogs' were first created in the 1970's. We still print and bind VW parts catalogs. These are available for you old fashioned folks who want to see your VW parts in print. We created our Volkswagen (VW) parts on line ordering site in the nineties. This enables us to keep thing current on a daily basis and to communicate effectively with Volkswagen shops, Volkswagen owners and restorers.

Safety and Service:

The classic Volkswagen owners and restorers have 'old fashioned' attitudes. We do too. On line ordering safety is assured. When you place a VW part order on line your credit card information will be stored as encrypted data for a very short period, usually one day. Personal data, including credit card information, is wiped out and placed on a separate internal PC so that no personal information can possibly be stolen. Of course we invite Volkswagen (VW) and Karmann Ghia parts shoppers to call or email for 'off line' service too.

The Checkout Message:

Your on line VW Rabbit or VW Cabriolet parts order entry will end with an opportunity to leave us a message. We read and respond to these quickly and thoroughly. We answer VW parts questions a few times a day on weekdays and strive to handle the mailbox most weekends too.
