Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1971-vw-squareback/ to see my 1971 VW
Squareback for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis MN.
If you've never ridden in a Type 3 they are very comfortable and smooth
driving. I personally had a Type 3 Fastback for several years, and I drove
all over the Country in it. They are a nice, quiet ride and they can cruise
at relatively high speeds with not much road noise. The Type 3 models are
heavier than the more common type 1 VWs (Beetle, Karmann Ghia, Thing) and
the ride is far different. There isn't really such a thing as luxury when
you're talking about classic Volkswagens, but if you had to choose a model
that skirts the upper atmosphere of luxury in a VW, the Type 3 would be the
A lot of work has been done to this vintage VW to keep it looking its best.
The stock wheels have been powder coated and fitted with new tires. The car
has new front brake calipers for the front disc brakes that came standard
on this year and model VW. The fuel injection system has been completely
gone through and operates like new. This is a rare, nice example of the
spacious Type 3 VW squareback.
With just 130k miles since new, this Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback has
averaged just under 3000 miles per year. It's a well preserved car that has
never been in an accident. The door gaps are great, and the car was
recently painted and new door, window and hood seals were replaced so the
car seals up nicely and looks very well finished. If you've been looking
for an exceptional Volkswagen 1600, then you'll be very happy to find this
beautiful VW Squareback we have up for auction.

I have owed this 1965 VW Notchback twice. It was the first car I ever owed
back in 1984 but I sold it in 1986. I bought the same car back in 2010 from
the guy I sold it to 24 years ago .
ISP West "over the top" exhaust for VW Type 3
The old wheels sold quicker than I expected and the new rear wheels aren't
ready yet, so we're limited to the car sitting on jackstands. Definitely
quieter on the outside than with the merged header and stinger. I can't
wait to see if it is measurably quieter inside the cabin.
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... ]
AND SADLY, THE CAR SOLD SOME TIME AGO. Still in the great NW, but no longer
mine ;-) She's with a good home though, which is the most I can hope for
with such a great old VW.

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
