The Volkswagen Type 3 Fastback is a compact car that was manufactured by Volkswagen from 1961 to 1973. Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor show, the Type 3 was marketed as the Volkswagen 1500 and later as the Volkswagen 1600, Fastback. In 1968, the Type 3 'E' became the first German automobile in series production with electronic fuel injection (Bosch D-Jetronic) as standard equipment.

First registered for the road on 27th June 1973, with only 46, 200, Kilometres with one previous owner from new, This is by far the very best example of a Volkswagen Type 3 1600 Fastback in existence to our knowledge. And being manufactured near the end of the vehicles production.

Unique in such original condition this example was supplied new to a Mr Vincent Dodd from the Department of Agriculture in Dublin Ireland. The vehicle remained in his ownership until recently when it became part of a private collection with little use until it was recommissioned recently.

One of the best original engine bays we have seen on a Type 3, extremely clean with original stickers still in place.
The factory fitted engine busts into life on the turn of the key. It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and it runs as quiet and smooth as you would expect for such an exceptional vehicle.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle ill be supplied with a 12-month MOT with no advisories.

VALUE

Low mileage, condition, and originality will contribute greatly to the value of any classic car.
