1964 VOLKSWAGEN TYPE 3
NOW HERE’S something a bit different, and I’m not talking about the car, I’m talking about the running gear that lies beneath. Let me clarif y. The V W 1600 Type 3 has always been a cool car in my book, but powerful it was not, actually I think I’ve been in faster horse-drawn carriages. The owner of this Type 3 obviously felt the same way, because gone is the factor y 1.5-litre powerplant from the notchback f lanks, and in its place lies a Subaru boxer engine and a Subaru gearbox. The owner reckons this new-found shove has revitalised the old girl, and I tell you what, I’d love to have a steer of it.
