1964 VW Type 3 Notchback For Sale
This is a very clean and very stock 1964 Notchback that is located in
Very well preserved example, extremely solid body and chassis...the
type of car a collector dreams of finding.
The Notchback is a bit of a rarity in the US.
It is a model that was never "officially" imported the US by Volkswagen,
but there were a fair amount of them brought in by other importing
firms and private parties.
The Notchback shares the same platform and all underpinning as the
Squareback and the Fastback
(which was introduced in 1966) and also the same chassis and such as
the Type 3 Karmann Ghia
(which is even rarer in the US)
The type 3 cars are fantastic drivers, a big improvement over the
Beetle in comforta and handling.
I always tell folks that they drive like a "real car".
Every time I am in one I marvel at how nice they feel.
This one looks like a fantastic example.
So many of them have been modified over the years that it is a real
treat to see one that is totally stock and unaltered!
This one still has the original two tone door panels in place...the
seats look to have been redone in black vinyl
(they were probably brown originally)
Shifter is an aftermarket itme...everything else is bone stock!
Handsome car ...a Deluxe model with the body chrome and wraparound
The car has the proper thin slot trim rings and flat caps.
Still early enough of a model to have the small mustache trim on the
hood and the side marker lights.
Body is in very nice shape...paint is very good.
All the way around it is very tidy.
The body looks to have had one respray, but it was done well.
Very clean car...aways garaged.
Rear trunk area is super clean and original,
Floorpans are super solid and untouched.
Tires are very good, shocks look recent.

Fenderwells are all cleanly painted.
Seat upholstery is in very nice shape front and rear.
Headliner looks nice and clean
Door panels have all the right trimmings.
Dash pad is excellent and is the rare early style...possibly replaced?
54,000 miles on the odometer...this is thought to be original and I
dont doubt it based on the condition of the car.

Being the "S" model or "Deluxe", it has the dual carb set up.
"Standard" or "N" models were equipped with a side draft single carb.
Looks like all the proper parts are in order here and the owner states
that it runs and drives very well.
It has been converted to 12 volts apparantly.
In closing this is a very nice car.
Very straight, very solid, cleanly restored and done in a very stock
and proper manner.
With a little of further detailing it could be a show stopper
or just as it is it is a wonderful example of a proper early Notchback!
