For Sale: 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

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.
