Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to digitally present to you this 1969 Volkswagen Type 3 Fastback.

If you like Volkswagens like we do, you will certainly love this one. These type 3 Fastbacks aren’t exactly easy to find and in this shape they are quite rare. Clearly a ton of time and money has went into this build and the final result is this masterpiece we have here. The car is finished in a fitting green with black and gold accents and has hints of rally inspired design aesthetics. This Fastback was built to be driven and enjoyed and it will have you grinning ear to ear when you’re behind the wheel. It has all the right go fast parts with plenty of parts to ensure it handles the corners as well. A trained eye will notice the additional hydro hand brake that can be used for all sorts of fun activities. Below is a detailed build description.

This build was started in 2016 and completed in 2018. During this restoration, every panel was sand blasted, fully body worked, and painted. Every nut and bolt was vibratory cleaned and painted bronze. All rubber was replaced. All suspension components were updated and a new sway bar was installed. The interior was all replaced with aluminum and covered in vinyl. The wiring in the car was also replaced with a painless wiring harness and new gauges from SpeedHut were installed.
