Volkswagen 1500, 1600 (Type 3)
The Volkswagen Type 3 platform was launched in 1961 to create a range of 2-door saloons, 3-door Estate and later a 2-door fastback coupe. Karmann-Ghia also developed a special coupe model which sold alongside their Type 1 coupe. In production until 1973, the Type 3 sold 2.5million.

VW 1500 1964 rear
Volkswagen 1500. A new 1493cc engine was developed for the Type 3, especially made to be flatter than the Type 1 engine. It was derived so that it would lie flatter and give more room for luggage above it.

VW 1600 E. In 1968 the 1600 engine was given Bosch Electronic Fuel Injection, probably the first volume car to receive it.
