1966 VW Type 3 Fastback For Sale



This is one of the cleanest Type 3's we have ever listed on the website.
It is a 66 Fastback, the first year of this rarely seen model.
It is located in Miami Florida but has been a California car its whole life up until last year.


The car is a truly impressive survivor...original paint, interior, etc, totally straight and impressively solid>
i think it would be extremely difficult to find a nicer one anywhere!


The car is super clean inside and out.


Most notable paint flaw are these marks in the paint on the drivers side rear fender.


The original paint finish is impressive.


Chrome bullet mirror is awesome.




Talbot is the prand...period 60's perfection!


There is a wiper scratch in the windshield...but the glass is all original and the rubber is holding up very well.




The interior is all original and really is in nice shape.


Dash pad is amazing...these are almost always cracked!




Wow!




Odometer reads 34,000 miles


Extremely rare tachometer


Door panels are looking great...handles and knobs are correct and original.


Headliner looks very nice as do the visors.














Carpet is original...coco mats have been installed to keep the floors nice.
Under dash area is spotless.




The chassis is totally solid.


Very clean.




Check out the fender wells...still original paint finish and pretty darn clean!








The dash is impressive...really the whole car is!










Under the back seat...super clean.


Dual quiet pack exhaust.


The engine and wheels are really the only non-stock items on this car.




The window rubber is just starting to dry out a bit...you can see the minor age cracks in this photo.


Great period Highway Patrol inspection sticker.




Under the hood is amazing!








Spare tire well is fantastically clean.


No wrecks, no rust, ever!


Check out the paper paint code sticker and inspection tag still in place!




Look at that reflection!


Rear trunk area is also super clean and untouched.




The engine has been mildly tuned and has bigger dual carbs and some other upgrades over stock.
Displacement is 1776cc.


12 volt electrics, nice modern alternator conversion.
The engine is a fresh build and it runs superb.
I would estimate it has less than 1000 miles on it since being done.






There is some slight warpage to the sheet metal below the license plate light...you can see it very clear here.
Looks like it is from slamming the lid with the light as the handle.
It may be possible for a paintless dent removal guy to massage this area a bit...its not bad and it would be a shame to have to do some
bodywork here...trying to keep the paint all original is a good thing.


Chrome is excellent.
Taillight lenses are the flat early style.


The original fender beading has faded a bit, but it is intact.


The front end is very clean and the trailing arms have been plated for some reason.
Car is lowered mildly.


Floor pans are super solid on the car...you really couldnt ask for a better, more solid example.


So solid and dry underneath...awesome.


The wheels are genuine Cosmics, not the reproductions.


The period Type 3 stripe on the rocker gives it a little more sporty look.
This can be removed without lasting damage...it has been installed only within the last year.




The Fastback really is one of the most beautiful VW models ever built.
I much prefer them over the Squareback or Notchback...it is just classic 60's all the way.
I have noticed an interesting upswing in interest in the model over the past few years
and values are on the climb. It is a model that is hard to find, and very very rarely do you see one in this condition!


In short...this is one seriously sweet Fasty.
First year for the model, superbly original example in great shape
no wrecks or rust, fresh engine and dialed in suspension, Rare wheels and more.
Its quite a find!
