Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: The Faster VW Fastback

Robadr caught this VW Type 3 fastback sporting a fine quad exhaust system, as well as its splendid original lime green paint job.

And that’s not all, it’s got a set of very fine BRM Speedwell mags, sold here by Empi. These were the hot wheels to have in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

I did a post on these a couple of years ago when I found a set of them on an old T1 double cab pickup. Those had five spokes, because of the older style five lug wheels.

Not sure of the exact year of this one. 1970? 1971? Someone will be able to pin it down, I assume.

I did a full CC on a Type 3 Fastback, so I’ll spare you the well-known details here.
