For your consideration a VW classic Type 3 Squareback in very nice condition for a daily driver or as a restoration project. The engine starts and runs, transmission shifts with no problems. Both have been checked out in a test drive. It has been lowered by the previous owner who also installed Airkewld Bad series disc brakes on all 4 corners. They are set up to receive a Japanese 5 bolt patterned wheel (Scion late model XB). Brakes work very well with this setup. The engine is equipped with Dual ICT's. The interior is in fair condition as the passenger seat is torn but the headliner, drivers seat, rear seat and door/rear panels are in good condition. The exterior is faded and has some very minor surface rust that can easily be sanded and repainted.  "There is no rust through in these areas that are photographed" I tried to detail the condition of the rust in the pics so please examine closely and feel free to request additional pics, no disappointments! The Body is very solid and straight with minor dings but only a few. I could find no rust in the usual places for the T-3's and again I made an attempt to capture those areas in the pics. It also needs a front windshield, I have a new seal for it. All the additional glass is in good shape the seals would need to be replaced. Doors open and close evenly and solid. Electrical works, the PO also changed the front turn indicators for earlier model T-3's, an "ok" job but there it is! Please email with your questions or to request additional pics of specific areas.  It also comes with a nice set of used BUDNIK custom wheels setup for the stock VW bolt pattern.  Please understand this vehicle will need additional work to become road worthy but as it sits it's a very nice foundation for any Type 3 VW enthusiast!!! Don't forget to bring a trailer and Bid with confidence ......  NO RESERVE!!!!

VW agrees to halt next-gen rally car development to help others stay in WRC

Sat, 22 Jun 2013 09:00:00 EST

Volkswagen has petitioned the FIA to hold on to the current specifications for cars in the World Rally Championship, according to The move is evidently an effort to keep as many competitors in the sport as possible, despite the fact that using the current spec racers may actually hurt Volkswagen's chances at winning. The three factory teams currently competing in the WRC are at the end of a three-year homologation cycle at the end of 2013, and new cars are expected to bow next year. But developing new racers could cost as much as $4.7 million.
That price tag would put M-Sport (which fields Ford racers) out of the WRC game for 2014 and would put Citroën participation in question as well. VW has already begun work on the next iteration of its Polo R WRC, and the hatch has nabbed four wins in six rounds this season. Now it appears that car won't bow until at least 2015. The FIA has officially agreed to freeze homologation of new WRC cars until the end of next season.

VW Up Buggy may be headed to showrooms

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 11:29:00 EST

Volkswagen showed six conceptual takes on its Up at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, one of those being the Up Buggy. Although few will probably remember it, VW has not forgotten it, applying for a patent for the Meyers Manx revival roadster way back in March 2012 and being approved in June of this year, according to a report in Autocar. That will give the automaker a 14-year lock on the design while it decides whether to move forward with a reboot of its past.
A patent doesn't mean the Up Buggy will ever move beyond the sheet-of-paper stage, but Autocar says VW is studying the market to see if a production version is feasible. We can't see North America ever getting it, but even so, we wouldn't complain if they made it - especially if they put an exposed engine in back that was set off by 18-inch-long twin tailpipes jutting straight up into the air. However, for a company that aims to be the world's number-one automaker by 2018, a niche vehicle for its mass-market brand would be a surprising use of resources.

Skoda unveils Volkswagen Up!-based Citigo

Tue, 27 Sep 2011 16:30:00 EST

This is the all-new Skoda Citigo, and if you're thinking that it looks rather familiar, that's because its Volkswagen-badged kin recently debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. That's right, the long-rumored Skoda version of Volkswagen's new Up! city car has finally arrived.
Buyers will have a choice of two 1.0-liter three-cylinder engines - one with 59 horsepower, the other with a 74 hp and a blistering 106 mph top speed - both mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Powerful they are not, but these three-bangers should prove to be extremely efficient, with Skoda quoting fuel economy numbers of 62.8 and 60.1 miles per gallon, respectively (on the European cycle).
Being a Skoda, the Citigo will go on sale in its home market of the Czech Republic this fall, with the rest of Europe getting the car next summer. Follow the jump for Skoda's official release.
