The Volkswagen Type 3 is a compact car that was manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen from 1961 to 1973. Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA), Type 3 was marketed as the Volkswagen 1500 and later as the Volkswagen 1600, in three body styles: two-door Notchback, Fastback, and Variant, the latter marketed as the 'Squareback' in the United States. The Type 3 diversified Volkswagen's product range beyond the existing models – the Type 1 Beetles, Type 14 Karmann Ghia, Type 2 vans, and pickups – while retaining several of the Beetle's key engineering features – notably the air-cooled rear-engine, rear-wheel drive train, a body bolted tightly to a platform chassis (integrating a backbone chassis into the car's floorplan) of the same 2.40 m (94 in) wheelbase, as well as all-round torsion bar suspension. The concept of the Type 3 was to be more of a family car than the Beetle, offering more passenger and luggage space, via about 15 cm (6 in) longer (overhang) and slightly wider, modern slab-sided bodies, as well as fitting a larger engine.
