1972 VW Type 3 Fastback

The VW Type 3 was first introduced in 1961, and arrived in the U.S. four years later. The styling and comfort was a departure from the tiny Beetle VW was known for, but the Type 3 still had the rear-mounted, air-cooled engine of its smaller brother. Available in only the Fastback and Squareback bodystyles in the U.S., the Type 3 Notchback is today rare and sought after in the states. Although still fairly common today, this one's cool rims and unique lavender paint are definitely interesting.

  1. I'm from the part of the country they call "The tri state area" NY NJ CT . I want to say these cars have vanished from my area. I remember seeing them in the 70's and early eighties, but then at some point they all vanished. Sometimes I will see a BUG/BEETLE around, but never these cars. Icy roads covered with salt probably never helped (rust). I do miss seeing these cars on the road or "PARKED" somewhere .
