Project XXXX - 1967 Volkswagen Type 3 Variant (Squareback)

Postby Neuk » Wed May 23, 2012 10:53 am

This won't strictly be a project, I already have Fes and FeO to work on, plan is to just get her back on the road to be used on weekends for fun. I really shouldn't have bought another car and wasn't planning to but this was too good to pass up, despite my SO's disapproval...

She is a 1967 Volkswagen Type 3 Variant (Squareback) with supposedly 87k miles on the clock although I think she may have gone over as the Odometer only has 5 digits. She is completely stock and as far as I can tell original with effectively 2 owners making me the 3rd owner in 46 years as her current owner inherited her from her late father when he passed away. She has been off the road for some time now but starts right up, idles well, drives well with the brkes needing to be redone and besides a dodgy fuel gauge and non-working hooter, everything electrical works. She is rough around the edges, the original paint showing the signs of 46 years of use, but she is straight with minimal rust which is a huge thing for such an old VW. Interior needs a bit of work to brighten it up a bit and return it to close to its former glory...

So, a few pictures...

Thought you'd keep it a secret for longer.


I went with Nic to look at the thing and it really is something! Original paint everywhere, except for one door, and a very straight body. Engine just needs a bit of a service I reckon.

Its awesome to cruise in.
