The Volkswagen Type 3 is a compact car manufactured by Volkswagen from 1961 to 1973. Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Type 3 was marketed as the Volkswagen 1500 and later the Volkswagen 1600, in three body styles: two-door Notchback, Fastback and Estate Car, the latter marketed as the 'Variant' in most markets, and 'Squareback' in the United States.
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, all round torsion bar suspension, and the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.
One registered keeper since new. Genuine UK registered vehicle. Stunning period vehicle. Fantastic condition throughout, many Service Receipts, bills, and old MOT's. Everything works and drives very well indeed. Not many of these left on the road, a rare chance to own a very cool classic.
