Here's a classic VW that's just a little different than the much more common Beetle, a Type 3 Squareback. Aircooled like the Beetle, and consisting of parts from VW's simple parts bin, this fun Squareback has undergone a recent body off restoration.
The car was painted a Dark Cherry metallic color although it looks as though the car was originally yellow. Fiberglass bumpers which were painted body color, body moldings were deleted, LED turn signals at the front of the car, and front and rear light bezels painted body color are the changes to the original layout of the exterior. Baby Moon hub caps are mounted on freshly powder coated wheels, which is in keeping with the classic look of this squareback.
The interior of the car is extremely nice and features a new dash pad, carpeting, headliner, and seat covers. The door panels are new, as are all window and door seals.
At the rear of the car a rebuilt 1600cc engine mounted to a 4 speed manual transmission. A SCAT cam, distributor, fuel pump, fan belt, plug wires and plugs are notable items added during the engine rebuild. New Shocks, and new brake lines/hoses were added to the chassis. Twin Weber carbs are hard to miss when looking in the engine bay, and a new EMPI quad tip exhaust is hard to miss when looking at the exterior of the car.
Featuring fresh paint, a rebuilt engine, an extremely nice interior, and a design featuring hard, angular lines which are the opposite of the classic Beetle, this is a car for any air cooled VW enthusiast to consider for their collection.
