Volkswagen Commercial from the mid-1960s (probably about 1965 or 66) for the new VW "Fastback" ("TL" for most of the other markets). It was the larger brother to the Beetle.

VW "split window" Microbus - pre-1968 footage
This footage dates before 1968. The "split window" front windshield stopped
after the 1967 model year in the US. Maybe this started the Stuff-a-bus
craze? This and many more ads brought to you by the original VW Commercial

1967 VW Type 3 Fastback: "Inge"
Portland, OR: excellent, nearly all-original 1967 VW Type 3 Fastback.
Third owner, has been with me for nearly 10 years. No rust beyond
superficial surface dings. Pan is 100% solid. Chrome is very good, though
has some minor areas of pitting. Never any sort of major accident (front
and rear are clean), though there is evidence of long-ago passenger side
door repair (done poorly). Glass is perfect. Motor is 98% original and "all
there." Original interior is excellent (no rips / tears; front seats could
use new foams), all correct trim pieces are there, dash is perfect.
Everything works but clock may need attention (regreasing, etc.) Runs,
drives, shifts, brakes wonderfully.
COMES WITH: original delivery papers and early records; original uber rare
*RED TYPE 3 WOLFSBURG FLOORMAT* though it is very well used and has always
had a hole at the heel near skinny pedal; red coco mats, a bit faded;
*extra set of correct Fastback popout window seals* (sourced from a donor
car; not NOS, but very good to excellent condition); original AM radio; NOS
German door seals; NOS Type 3 muffler; seals for turn signals and original
rear turn signal lenses. Also have small box of original parts.
NEEDS: has a slow oil leak on passenger side valve cover; possible new
battery (this one is new but has been driven so infrequently that it
doesn't crank well unless jumped); could use carb tuning or rebuilds and
general tune-up attention; needs new window rubber seals (front and rear);
could use new seals for front and rear trunks (I have one for rear.) I'd
also love to track down some original '67 Type 3 wheels and trim; these
chromies look nice from 10 ft away but the chrome is pretty weak and
starting to rust.
This car is not a show car (yet). It needs to live with a real Type 3 geek,
someone who will care for it and cherish it with the attention and love a
rare survivor like this deserves. I know in 10 years I am going to be very
regretful of this, but right now I do not have the means/time/skills to
maintain this wonderful car like it should be.
[ PS yes, I know I have a typo in one of the last titles... ]
