132542 / 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/csvxwvo This cool 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback is an unusual, highly appealing time capsule that retains its original drivetrain, houses its original interior and would make any VW collector very happy. This Type 3 has only changed hands twice in its forty years of existence and was garage kept the entire time. This resulted in a solid body with factory correct panel gaps that has never been worked on or taken apart. While this car's paint isn't concours, it does carry a nice shine and would look great motoring down the street to any VW show. Open the hood and you'll find the cars original air cooled 1.6L (1584 cc) 'pancake' engine. The engine bay looks good for a 40 year old car and I'd venture to say that this car has been largely unmodified save for the two small diameter chrome air cleaners that sit on either side of the engine bay. Underneath the car, cross-mounted round torsion bars span the full width of the chassis while an anti-roll bar connects the cars upper trailing links together. The rear suspension is the cars original CV joint semi trailing arm system that houses the cars original 4-speed manual transmission. New correct 15 inch steel wheels with chrome center caps and stainless trim rings are mounted on wide white wall 165R15 Geostar tires. Inside the car, an all original interior is in very good shape with only the driver's seat showing any major signs of wear. If you know vintage Volkswagens, you know that finding an all original '71 Type 3 is almost impossible, especially one that's been this well maintained. Don't miss your opportunity to own a truly unique car; call now!

1963 VW Serbie Type 3 Squareback Dragster
For those unfamiliar with this era of Volkswagens, the Type 3 joined the trio of Beetle, Kombi and Karmann Ghia in 1961, retaining the air-cooled rear engine but packaged into three new compact body styles. Serbie started life as a 1963 wagon (aka Squareback) that lived a quiet and unassuming life in central Java until Muzamil of Bedjo VW Clinic found it alone, but in surprisingly good condition, in a backyard. Moving around to Serbie’s business end, it’s instantly clear that this little Type 3 really does mean business! Beneath the jungle of ducting, tubing and braided lines sits a 1600cc Beetle engine that has been stretched to 2500cc with a Pauter case. Boosting duties belong to a sizeable Garrett GT42R that I’m told is good for 1000hp, although at the time of shooting the confirmed figure was closer to the 700hp mark. It seems I can’t go anywhere at the moment without seeing a blue anodised turbosmart product attached to some crazy high-horsepower build. Here, a Pro-Gate50 external wastegate was proudly perched on top of the turbo manifold, keeping Boost levels in check. Hugging the engine tightly are the M&H drag radials, which at 10 inches wide are surprisingly narrow for a purpose-built drag car. The reason is simply packaging – the desire to keep a factory body has limited the space between engine and factory fender line. Also worth a closer look is Muzamil’s cockpit. Here you can see how the factory body lifts away from the chassis and NHRA-spec rollcage. All the usual suspects for a competition drag car are present, including a Painless Wiring switch panel, quick-release wheel and a bevy of old school Auto Meter gauges. In the passenger area, the team has installed an ice water tank to circulate coolant through the Intercooler. Serbie is yet another example of how hot Indonesia is for custom builds at the moment, and even more impressive that such a comprehensive creation can be built in-house by a small team of technicians.
