Volkswagen Type 3 1961-1973

A Very Brief Histrory

The Volkswagen Type 3, also called the Volkswagen 1500 and later the Volkswagen 1600, was a range of cars from German manufacturer introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The range launched in August 1961 with two models: the Notchback featuring three-box styling in a saloon body, and the Karmann Ghia 1500 (also known as the Type 34 Karmann Ghia) with a coupé body. The first Variant (known as the Squareback in the USA) with an estate body followed in 1962. The Fastback, or TL version, a fastback coupé, arrived in August 1965. Two convertibles were announced with the original models, but did not enter production.

The Type 3 diversified Volkswagen's product range beyond the existing models — the Type 1 (Beetle), Type 14 Karmann Ghia, Type 2 (Bus) — while retaining their engineering principles, notably the air-cooled engine and the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.

At the end of 1967, the Type 3 became the first German automobile in series production with electronic fuel injection (Bosch D-Jetronic) as standard equipment.

Production ended in 1973 at the Wolfsburg plant, with production moving to VW's new Emden plant, which was later retooled in 1973 to build the first generation Passat. The Wolfsburg plant was retooled to build the Golf.
