Well, compact pickups were very popular in the US at the time, I'm guessing at least partly as a result of the high (by our standards) fuel prices of the late 1970s. VW's management probably thought...

Walking home from the store I saw a 1969 Dodge Charger. Or maybe it was a Super Bee? But it was definitely a 1969, because it helpfully had a vanity plate that said "1969".
