Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this funky
1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback for sale on consignment with our
Arizona showroom. The Type 3 Volkswagen used the same wheelbase as
a Type 1 (Beetle) but with ponton side panels coming in Fastback,
Notchback and Squareback styling. In total, around 2.5 million Type
3 Volkswagens were produced between 1961 and 1973. This vehicle was
designed to be a show vehicle as well as a functional driver for
weekend trips, which is everything the Volkswagen brand represents!
The build can be classified as "frame up" starting with stripping,
working out any bodywork needed, media blasting and later
repainting in two-tone Gray and Black to the tune of $9,000
according to the seller. Custom chrome bumpers and a roof rack have
been added for functionality and looks. The 1600cc engine that
comes with this vehicle has been through an expensive overhaul of
its own from a full rebuild to new dual carb set up, alternator
conversion and more. Similarly, the 3-speed automatic transmission
on this vehicle, which is a rare option on Volkswagens to begin
with, was rebuilt too. One of the nicest features of this Type 3
has to be the fully reupholstered interior and there have been some
clever modifications inside too. The rear bench seat has three
configurations; it can fold for more cargo room, provide seating
for passengers and can even lay flat as a full-length bed! Storage
compartments have also been added on both sides of the rear seats.
Power windows are a nice convenience to have as well as the
Bluetooth radio with USB input so you can plug your device right
in. So you don't get stranded, there's the thoughtful addition of a
battery kill switch for when you're not using the items that draw
power. This 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback is a cool ride and
you already know there's way more into this build than you'll pay
for it. For this unique ownership opportunity of an air-cooled
Volkswagen classic, give our helpful and knowledgeable Sales staff
a call today at (623) 900-4884 and we will be your eyes and ears on
this VW Squareback. Alternatively we can be reached by emailing
