Still 5 Lug: 1965 Volkswagen Type 3 1500S Notchback

This VW is in need of some serious love.

The Type 3 was a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive compact vehicle produced by Volkswagen from 1961-1973, resulting in over 2 million built. That's a ton of cars but I wonder where they are all hiding, as I'm not sure I've ever seen one.

Oh, to live in a time when automobile manufacturers gave consumers a real choice of vehicles. Wanted the superior handling and driving dynamics of rear-engine setup? No problem, Volkswagen offered you practical, affordable and reliable cars. Ask the same thing today and the least expensive rear-engine car is a Porsche 911 at $70k or whatever they start at. And Volkswagen has completely abandoned the engineering principles they held for most of the 20th century.

The condition on this one is clearly rough. Paint is poor and the seller states there is rust. The interior has no seats. The seller makes no mention of the engine and transmission, but say it is very complete, and still wears the 5-lug wheels. They also mention they have a donor '66 floorpan to use on this and a bunch of extra parts.

The seller says they have paperwork for the vehicle as well.

This thing needs a lot of work, but it's a classic vehicle with the unique rear-engine setup that has a devoted following around the world.

Find it here on craigslist in Fall River, Massachusetts for $1,700.
