1969 Volkswagen Fastback

1969 Volkswagen Type 3 Fastback

The only year with an exterior gas tank fill!

First Impression : Great looking car with a healthy sound, good panel fitment and originality. Got 3 thumbs up driving it 10 miles. Came from San Diego where it spent most of its life.
Exterior / Body : Very good panel fitment, and presence. Has been repainted once in its lifetime approximately 15+ years ago. The paint job was done really well I would rate it a 8.5/10. Good rubbers. Doors shut nice. Nice glass all around. Decent chrome, and bright work. Staggered wheels with negative camber in the rear for a little bit of an aggressive look. No major accident history, or evidence anywhere. Undercarriage completely original, and rust free. The original undercoating is flaking in some few places.
Interior : Super clean interior. Original steering wheel, radio, headliner in good shape. Seats look, and feel redone. Aftermarket radio inside the glove box.  Carpet looks original with an aftermarket 2nd carpet on top in some areas for the floors mats, etc.
Technik : Rebuilt engine with dual Webber carburetors. Starts up easy, has good power and rolls down the road well. Disc brakes all around. All lights, turn signals, horn, radio, emergency switch, interior dome lights work great.
Negatives : A few chips here, there and a little ding on the driver rear quarter panel that has some cracking. Speedometer cable was disconnected because it was making a squeaking noise. Fog lights aren’t hooked up. Starts in neutral only.
Comes with tools, spare, misc. parts (extra pop out window chrome trim, rubbers) clean California title.
