It has Porsche performance stance along with an air-ride front suspension and it offers room for four people plus lots of cargo space. This rad Squareback was recently restored to amazing quality standards! The undercarriage is stunning and really tells the story of the overall restoration quality of this custom Type 3.
Finished in show winning Olive paint with black roof, the finish and trim on this wagon are in excellent order overall with only some very minor imperfections. The body panels are straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the chrome bumpers are in very good order. The rear cargo area above the engine is well-finished and the rear window has an electric defroster. As any observer will notice, the car’s front track is narrower than factory specs; it is four inches narrower and has upgraded lug to lug conversion with front disk brakes and Porsche Fuch wheels. To set the stance just perfectly, the front has been upgraded with custom mono air suspension from Ride Tech.
This Squareback wears Bravuris radials at every corner. Each one is mounted on fantastic Porsche Fuch chrome wheels with black painted inserts. The wheels and tires are all in very good condition and the Fuchs look very appealing on this VW.
Out back is Type 1.6L flat, air-cooled, 54HP, four-cylinder engine (#TO905885) with upgraded dual Weber carburetors and backed by four-speed manual transmission. The engine breathes via stainless-steel A1 exhaust system and sounds very Porsche 912 like.
Inside, the red front bucket and rear bench seats are in excellent condition. The black carpet is in very good order while the white headliner is in similar condition and offers great contrast to the carpet and seats. factory, two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the red inner door panels and instrument panel are all in very good shape but the fuel gauge and horn are inoperable. The car has VDO gauges as well but does not have wiper blades. floor-mounted shift lever resides between the front seats. Controls for the air ride system are hidden in the glovebox.
The Type was initially equipped with 1.5L engine based on the air-cooled 1192 cc flat-4 found in the Type 1. While the long block remained the same as the Type 1, the engine cooling was redesigned by putting the fan on the end of the crankshaft instead of on the generator. This reduced the height of the engine profile, allowing greater cargo volume and earning its nicknames: the pancake or suitcase engine.
It used similar transmission to the Beetle but with higher ratios and longer axles. Unlike the Beetle (Type 1), the Type engine and transmission unit was mounted into subframe (which contained the complete rear suspension), in turn rubber-mounted to the floorpan and body, thereby isolating vibration and road noise from the passenger space. notable advance from the Type to the Type was the front suspension although similar to the Type 1, it was the first Volkswagen front suspension to incorporate transverse round torsion bars, as opposed to the Type 1’s torsion leaves. The Type 3’s torsion bars are cross-mounted in the lower tube, so that each individual torsion bar spans the full width of the car, the upper tube containing an anti-roll bar that connects the upper trailing links to each other. The complete front suspension unit is rubber-mounted to the car's floorpan. In 1968, the rear suspension was upgraded to double jointed CV joint semi trailing arm suspension (sometimes called IRS by VW enthusiasts to differentiate it from the previous (IRS) swing-axle type), design feature that previously appeared on the VW Type in 1967.
The Type offered both front and rear enclosed luggage areas, with greater volume and cargo accessibility via both the boot (trunk) and the bonnet (hood). In each of the variants (Notchback, Squareback and Fastback) as well as the Type 2’s from 1968 on, the engine was located under panel in the rear trunk. This unusual placement was highlighted in period Volkswagen television commercial for the American market. It featured actor Dustin Hoffman showing the interior of the Fastback model and explaining the car's technical features but unable to locate the engine. The ad closed with the copy, “Your VW dealer will show you where the motor is.” In August ‘65 (the ‘66 model year) these were replaced by disc brakes, coinciding with the introduction of the Fastback and 1600 engine (Australian built models retained drum front brakes until August 1967). These have 4-stud wheels (4 130 mm PCD) with eight cooling slots. Rear brakes were always leading/trailing shoe drums.
The Type followed the Type Beetle, utilizing low-profile version of Volkswagen’s rear-engined, four-cylinder air-cooled engine, as well as body-on-chassis construction (the body bolts to frame that includes the floor pan), retaining the same wheelbase – but featuring ponton (slab sided) styling, in contrast to the Type 1’s articulated fenders and running boards. 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 new design. In 1961 VW announced the new line as the “VW 1500.” The Fastback, or TL version, fastback coupé, arrived in August 1965, at the same time the 1600 engine was introduced. Volkswagen’s intention was that this model should replace the Notchback, which is what happened in the UK market, but in other markets, including the German domestic market, the number of customers preferring the older Notchback shaped car was higher than foreseen, and in the end both Notchback and Fastback body shapes remained in production until July 1973. The Type also featured wall-to-wall carpeting, and was available with air conditioning in the US.
Volkswagen of America began importing the Type in 1966 in the “Squareback” and “Fastback” but not the Notchback configurations. The Type was competing in the market with the Chevrolet Corvair that had been previously introduced in the United States in 1960, which incorporated six-cylinder, rear-mounted, air-cooled engine in notchback and station wagon body style, as well as compact van derived from the platform.
In 1968, the Type ‘E’ (Einspritzung) became the first German automobile in series production with electronic fuel injection (Bosch D-Jetronic) as standard equipment. For the 1968 model year, 1969 in the USA, three-speed fully automatic transaxle became available, noted for extremely low internal friction. With the automatic came CV-jointed independent rear suspension (IRS), replacing the swing axle (also IRS) set-up. For 1969, the CV-jointed rear axle was standard with both automatic and manual transmissions.
Competition to this VW Squareback in 1969 included Chevrolet’s Corvair, Datsun’s Sunny wagon, Ford’s Falcon wagon and Toyota’s Corolla wagon.
This car has all the ingredients of classic vehicle – looks that would turn heads, rarely seen at car shows and cruise events yet it has special elements that set it apart, like the stance from the air suspension and Porsche Fuch wheels.
