Volkswagen Typ 3 Fastback 1600 TLE — 1969

Very nice and unusual Type 3 it’s a non-renovated original car, that’s been in a collection for over 30 years. The gearbox and body shape makes a rare rind these days.

"It will require a full service and inspection since it’s been standing still for years, add to that a clean and polish you have very nice VW Type 3 and rare model"


This car has only had two owners. The car was used by the first owner, in Karlstad, from 1969 to 1988 and was then sold to the owner circle behind Arvika's car museum. The car is in unusually good condition, completely original, without damages or improvements. It has been decommissioned in the collection since 1989 and started at regular intervals. The mileage is 39,302 km and although we estimate that to be 139,302 km, it is not entirely impossible that it could also be 39,302 km given the cars is generally in a fantastic condition.
There is no rust damage and the paint is original. The model is not among the most common, as it has a real 3-speed Borg-Warner automatic transmission which VW developed for the US market for these models year, instead of the otherwise standard semi-automatic. 1969 is also the first year of electronic injection, (the same one that came in the Porsche 914 the following year), which yielded around 10% power increase. All in all this is a car in a nice collector's condition; it is non-renovated and is surprisingly fresh. In addition, it has a special design and is also an unusual model.
Engine runs and registration paperwork is available.

  • Mechanical condition:

    We had the car in the workshop and changed fuel hoses, cleaned the tank, checked oils and started the car. During a short test drive, the car runs nicely in the engine and gears. The brakes need a review, they pull unevenly. The car has not been inspected/MOT since 1989 so the next one will be last time.

  • Interior condition:

    Nice and complete with all its details with a small crack on the top of the dashboard. Seat cover fitted on front seats, and underneath the seat fabric is complete and slightly worn.

  • Exterior condition:

    Very nice body and paint work.

  • General condition:

    Very nice in a collector's condition, will need a full service before hitting the road.

Facts about the model

1600 TLE med ett extra E på bakuckan är mycket ovanligt. TL är fastbackkarossen och E står för Einsprizung. Det extra E:et med pil under står för Eletronisch, alltså elektrisk insprutning, vilket var en stor nyhet detta år och gjorde dessa bilar betydligt piggare och vridstarka, jämfört med tidigare fögasarmodeller.
Det exra E:et sattes bara på de svenska modellerna för att ytterligare visa detta och bli mer konkurrenskraftiga.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
  • ATTENTION: Many of these cars are sold without valid Swedish registration documents, as spare parts.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
