Model information

Type 3 Fastback


This poor old Fastback was looking very sad when we found it on the side of the road in Dundrum. It was on Barton road and had just been sold to a man from Tallaght who wanted it for its engine only so the body was to be scrapped. It was a shame really as it wasn’t that bad and was quite restorable but then again, this was a long time ago when Fastbacks weren’t that popular but nowadays people will go to unbelievable lengths to get their hands on an Irish registered Fastback, or any Type 3 for that matter.

This particular Fastback was not built in Dublin so was brought in as a fully built up car by MDL on the Naas Road. It drove out of the MDL and headed to its Dublin dealer to be sold, powered by its 1600cc engine. The colour was Iberian Red (L31F). It was sold and registered in Dublin (ZJ) in August of 1973.
