Seller's Notes

This 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Fastback can't help but grab some extra attention. It's not just that we rarely see these on the classic car scene these days, but also this one has a sleek paint and custom interior that makes it an eye-catching coupe offered for an affordable price. The reason these Type 3s get a lot of attention is that the fastback version seems to take the VW simplicity and gives it a touch of Porsche-level flair. So it's sporty without being pretentious. And that makes it the kind of car that's welcomed everywhere. And this is the kind of VW that's worth showing off everywhere. That's because the blue paint has a smooth and clean look of a modern professional application. And the hint of metallic will radiate on the sunny Sunday drives. So it will really show off the sleek profile, rounded curves, and German build quality. And while this car looks terrific, it also never takes anything too seriously. That's why the bumpers and trim still carry a nice hint of originality. Clean glass, good weather-stripping, and a nice set of upgraded wheels from Mid America Motorworks. The interior has the right classic style with the Wolfsburg crest steering wheel, smooth dash, and stock details. But you can also tell this was made to be a better cruiser. That's why you have newer carpeting, a full set of auxiliary readouts, and body-hugging front bucket seats borrowed from a Honda Civic Si. One of the coolest parts of the car is its functionality. There's a famous VW ad where Dustin Hoffman shows off VW's traditionally front trunk that's far more spacious than the Beetle. And then he runs around to the back where he expects to see a motor, but instead, the rear hatch just leads to another spacious trunk. This versatile trunk setup is due to the nature of the flat-four motor and some clever layout updates. This air-cooled pancake motor doesn't take up very much space under the rear floor. This is also attractive because you have the same hardy engineering that went into the Beetle and Bus. This dual-carb 1600cc motor fires up readily and makes that unmistakable classic air-cooled hum. A later Type 3 like this has an improved suspension design over the Beetle, and so it's quite a nice handler. Plus, you have the control of a four-speed manual transmission and front disc brakes. The wheel upgrade also means a wider array of modern tires are available. The value price leaves room in your budget if you want to restore the gauges, add a modern stereo, or maybe some modern sport tires. Those are just details that you get to utilize when personalizing this sharp-looking and strong-running classic. Call today!!!
