The haunted VW Type 3 Squareback

From a late 70's South African candid camera-type movie 'Funny People' by Jamie Uys. A VW Type 3 Squareback was rigged by remote to fool around with people, and it was all captured on film. Note the other VW cars in the background, typical 70's South African street scenes. For more info on the local VW scene, go to www.aircooledvwsa.co.za and enjoy! Regards Pine

Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt? Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters. Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960 VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965. We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us a call today if you know of one. Thanks again.

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!
