Model information

Type 3 Variant and Type III


I don’t know much about this fantastic Type 3 Variant other than what I remember from seeing at the Kilcommon VW Show in Tipperary. It had a steel sliding sunroof and was a US spec model so it was LHD. Perhaps it was an ex US embassy car or a personal import, it’s all just guesses right now. It looked to be in excellent condition and even had the all red US spec rear lights.

The Delta Green (L610) paintwork really came alive in the sunshine that day in Kilcommon. The Variant, or Squareback as it was called in America was registered in Dublin in April 1968 although we think this is a 1965 model.

We’d love to know more about this very special model and how it managed to get from the USA to Ireland at a time when personal imports were beyond the average classic car enthusiast.
