Volkswagen Type 3


We are pleased to offer parts for the Volkswagen Type 3. The Type 3 includes the VW Fastback, VW Notchback and the VW Squareback. The VW Type 3 was introduced in 1961. The VW Type 3 appears in some numbers in the USA in 1963 and sold vigorously by 1966 There are three types of Type 3; the first two released were the Volkswagen Notchback and the Volkswagen Variant, which is also known as the VW Squareback. The Volkswagen Fastback was released later in 1965.

The Volkswagen Type 3 was introduced to expand the successful Volkswagen product range. The Type 3 was designed as a classier car while using much of the engineering from the Type 1. The Volkswagen Type 3 line was not available for sale in the United States through Volkswagen of America until 1966, when the Squareback and Fastback were added to their line-up.

A little over 2.5 million Volkswagen (VW) Type threes were produced until production for the Type 3 ended in Wolfsburg in 1973.

We are adding VW Type 3 parts as they are made as good reproductions or as we import them from Europe. The Type 3 site will have guaranteed up to date Type 3 parts pricing as posted.

The most authentic VW Type 3 upholstery (Type 3 seat covers, Type 3 door panels, Type 3 carpets, Type 3 sun visors and also accessories are manufactured by TMI. We are please to have been a TMI distributor since they "opened their doors." If selecting VW Type 3 upholstery products you may get a good picture of fabric and colors but you may also send us an email and request swatches of Type 3 upholstery fabrics.

Volkswagen Parts for over 40 Years

We have been providing Volkswagen restorers with parts for their classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, Volkswagen Vanagon, VW Rabbit, VW Cabriolet, and VW Thing as well as the VW Type 3 since 1974. We have more than forty years in the Volkswagen restoration business! We originated in upholstery and convertible top parts but added VW sedan, body, glass, rubber and other parts.

We still operate the shop where we manufacture the convertible wood top bows for classic air cooled Volkswagen Beetle and Karmann Ghia convertibles nearly forty years after we began. Our main building is a restored ice house in southern Rhode Island. We have added separate warehouses, efficiently linked via our data base of parts for air cooled and water cooled Volkswagen sedans and Volkswagen convertibles. Ordering your Volkswagen Type 3 parts is secure: we do not store customer data on our site. We transfer it to an internal system inaccessible on the internet as soon as we begin processing the order ! We are also happy to help you with your VW Type 3 parts needs via telephone. You may reach us Monday through Friday from 9 to 5 Eastern time. As we provide thorough service there are times when our five phone lines get tied up. Please be patient or try emailing us. Our parts questions are answered three times per day.

Although the Volkswagen (VW) Corporation abandoned its air cooled VW line after 1979, the later water cooled cars, like the Rabbit convertible and VW Cabriolets retained design and engineering quality that helped make the classic Volkswagens special. The Rabbits and Volkswagen Cabriolets are restoration worthy convertibles and sedans. Their restoration became popular and we added parts for those cars to our Volkswagen parts line.
