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.

Rock Crawling my VW Baja Bug - NOT FAKE!!!
Rock crawling my bad ass VW baja bug in the Sierra Mountains. This is a totally modified 1970 VW beetle with a full chassis, King coilover shocks on all fours, with a 2165cc turbo, Megasquirt EFI system. This car totally rocks off roading and runs like a dream with the Megasquirt, EDIS-4 electronic fuel injection system. Music created by me with Garageband and a harmonica on a Mac, 2010.
