Volkswagen Type 3 Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 2-16-2013

Volkswagen Type 3 Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip The Volkswagen Type 3 (sold as the Volkswagen 1500 and later the Volkswagen 1600) was a compact car manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen (VW), introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) and ultimately available in two-door notchback, fastback and station wagon variants. The Type 3 diversified Volkswagen's product range beyond the existing models — the Type 1 (Beetle), Type 14 Karmann Ghia, Type 2 (Bus) — while retaining their engineering principles, notably the air-cooled engine and the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The Type 3 followed the Type 1, utilizing a low-profile version of Volkswagen's rear-engined, 4-cylinder air-cooled engine, as well as body-on-chassis construction while featuring ponton styling in contrast to the Type 1's articulated fender and running board. VW finalized the design by 1959 with prototypes ready for testing by 1960. Secrecy was such that even at the 1960 Geneva Auto Show, VW denied they were readying a new design. In 1961 VW announced the new line as the "VW1500". Production began in August 1961, a month before launch, of the Volkswagen 1500 Notchback, encompassing three-box styling in a notchback saloon body.[3] Production of the Karmann Ghia 1500 (also known as the Type 34 Karmann Ghia) with a coupé body commenced in November 1961 and deliveries started in January 1962.[4] The estate bodied Variant (known as the Squareback in the USA) followed, with the first cars produced in February 1962.[5] Two convertibles based on the 1500 Notchback were also announced with the original models, but did not enter production.[6]

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!





Yaril's Volkswagen Type 3 - BRtv Episode 3
Imagine yourself back in the Do-Wop 1950s. Now picture what a young car guy, hot rodder type, would look like. Then take that image, dip it in a batter of Cuban heritage, add a good dose of upbringing and family values. Follow that with a splash of love of all things vintage and cool, and lastly add a great sense of style, attention to detail, and humility. Now pull that person in the present time and drop him in Miami Florida. What you might get, my not be too far off of Yaril Quintana. Yaril is just about one the coolest and nicest people you can meet. He's the owner of Yaril's Customs out of Miami Florida, and is the builder and owner of this awesome VW Type 3. He's a hot rod builder and an incredible craftsman, with award winning capabilities and an astounding sense of attention to detail. His shop is as clean and as cool and anything else he puts his name to. Just hanging out there, makes a normal person want to run out, buy a junker and build it into a hot rod, or something as cool. This video celebrates his awesome Squareback, and attempts to show a little bit about the man himself, and what are the principles that drive the kind of creativity that make a shop like his, a possibility, as well as a realization to a life long dream. Let me say again, you could almost not meet a nicer, cooler guy than Yaril Quintana, with as much talent, humility, and just good core values, as the ones that drive him. We hope you enjoy this video. For more on this story and some cool pics check out the whole update on Braggenrites.com
