1971 Volkswagen Type III Squareback

The Type III Squareback is not generally the classic Volkswagen many people think of. Outside of the many Beetle variants, there’s the Karmann Ghia if you want Porsche looks without the price. If you want to embody the surfer vibe, there’s of course the many Transporters and Buses that always draw strong money. And if you want something a little different from everything else, there’s the Thing. But the Squareback has a faithful following, and with good reason – many people had these reasonably dependable, cheap wagons as family transport back in the 1970s and have a soft spot for them as a result. But not many are in the shape of today’s fully refreshed 1971 example:

Selling a very clean solid driver quality 1971 VW Squareback..

This car underwent a complete paint restoration over the last few years, completed about 5 years ago.

The car had been owned by the same family for years and was a super solid foundation to start with. Having only 65k original miles on it.

Very stock drivetrain in nice shape.

The interior and exterior were modernized. It was a painted a newer Salsa Red Pearl and has custom seat covers made to compliment the exterior.

Prior to new paint, it was still wearing its original green paint. It was completely stripped and painted inside and out using quality materials. It was fully re-upholstered new headliner, seats, carpet and extra sound deadner. All news seals as well.

The paint is a nice driver status job. Not over the top show quality, but gets lots of compliments.

I have over $12,000k in receipts for parts and materials put into the car, not including initial cost of the car.

This is currently a daily driver with very few issues.

Like any older vehicle it has minor things that need attention every once in a while but in its current state it is a great driver.

Please email or call me for more information.

I have the car listed locally for sale and reserve the right to end the auction early.

While it’s not a 100 point Concours car, the photos show that the car is really quite clean underneath. The paint may only be driver quality, but it’s done and looks quite presentable. The interior was also refreshed, something few of these cars have. Overall, it looks like a very nice quality driver and it’s easy to believe the claimed $12,000 invested. With a no reserve auction and bidding current as less than half that investment amount, this car could really be a steal if you’re able to snipe it at the last moment and would make a great air-cooled driver!
