The Volkswagen Type 3 is a compact car that was manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen from 1961 to 1973. Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, Internationale AutomobilAusstellung (IAA), the Type 3 was marketed as the Volkswagen 1500 and later as the Volkswagen 1600, in three body styles: twodoor Notchback, Fastback and Squareback, the latter marketed as the Variant in most markets and Squareback in the United States.
The Type 3 diversified Volkswagens product range beyond the existing models the Type 1 Beetle, Type 14 Karmann Ghia, Type 2 (Bus) while retaining several of the Beetles key engineering principles, notably the aircooled rearengine, rearwheel drive layout and allround torsion bar suspension on the same 94.5inch wheelbase. The concept of the type 3 was to let it be more of a family car than the Beetle, offering more passenger and luggage space and a larger engine.
The model received a facelift in 1970, when a 4.5inch noselengthening, added 1.5 cubic feet to the luggage capacity. At the same time, it got new big squaresection bumpers and much larger tail lamps and front indicators.
Wagon competition to this VW in 1971 included Chevrolets Vega Kambako, Datsuns 1200, Dodges Colt, Fords Pinto and Toyotas Corolla.
