Volkswagen Concept: The Type IIIs, Part 1
Here are some VW Concepts that combine air-cooled Volkswagen Type IIIs (Notchback, Squareback and Fastback models) and my interpretation of "phantom" models that VW never produced but could have.
With the relatively successful Type3, Volkswagen could have thought of offering a four door Notchback model to appeal to a wider audience. What if they actually produced it is the basis for this next Volkswagen Concept. This dark Forest Green beauty is updated physically and spiritually. The number four also tell about the 2.7 liter Type 4 engine with a modified Type3 shroud that fires this fordor like a dart past the century mark in a scant 6 seconds.

Dark Blue coats the massaged, shaved late model Type 3 Notchback. Speed3 is given the speedster treatment. Which means a lightweight, stripped-down, bare-bones track rat. First, the bumpers are removed. The body panels then are painstakingly straightened before the deep blue paint is sprayed on. The Topchop is the single strongest visual statement. The roof, door tops and quarter windows are unceremoniously removed. Up to 3 inches are removed from the windshield posts and angled inward 7 degrees. The top part of the windshield now sports a custom aluminum header. Custom safety windshield, side plexiglass, and rubbers are fitted.

Bora2 (Boracay Squareback)
Another beach cruiser, this Volkswagen Concept is based on a clapped out Type 3 Volkswagen Squareback. Instead of restoring the ugly front fenders, they are simply removed. The rusty rear fenders were also unceremoniously cut off altogether revealing the underlying sub structure. The entire roof was likewise cut off to be saved for a different surfwagen concept. The basis for Bora2 was then repaired and reinforced with a steel substructure that incorporate swing-upward doors, Lambo-style.

Another beach cruiser, this Volkswagen Concept is based on a Type 3 Volkswagen Squareback. Vermouth is Germanic for "worm wood" which provides an interesting theme for this VW. After straightening out the body, pearl white paint with hot pink metallic flakes added for effect was expertly applied. The side panels were fitted and framed with dark redwood providing terrific contrast to the white body. The interior is covered in Cappucchino and Coffee leatherette and brown German weave carpeting.

Fast and furious, 3urO is designed for battle against BMW M3s and Audi S4s. Sleek and silver, 3urO takes the German or Euro-tuner look along the Type3 path. Champaign-edition 79 Volkswagen Convertible silver coats the massaged, shaved Type 3 body. A blueprinted Eurorace 3.0 liter, fuel-injected, Type4 engine, mated to a rare Gene Berg, close-ratio 5-speed gearbox provide the heat. Gigantic 19 inch Audi A8 W12 alloy rims wrapped with enormous Michelin radials are expertly fitted and helps blasts this fastback like a silver bullet past triple-digit speeds, A discrete rear spoiler adds the necessary downforce this demon needs without sacrificing style.
