When your older siblings are both cult icons as two of the longest-running and highest selling vehicles of all time, it's hard to match their impact.  This unavoidable fact places the Type 3 in a very interesting place within the Volkswagen enthusiast scene, helping this example to earn Find of the Day status.


Currently for sale on eBay Motors, this Type 3 is one of the nicest we've seen, and the seller notes that the car is largely original.  Things like the exterior trim have been refurbished, a new carpet has been installed, rubber seals have been replaced, and other smaller updates have been performed, but all have been done extremely tastefully.  Mechanically, the car's brakes have been redone and a 1600cc motor with high compression heads has been fitted.  To dial in the aesthetic, 17" wheels were fitted, shorty shocks installed and the control arms narrowed.

This Type 3 is currently at a high bid of $18,329 on eBay Motors, and located in Miami, Florida.  While this price could definitely be considered top dollar, we think it's money well spent.
