Default Clifton - my 69 Square

My new project is a 1969 VW Squareback.
  • 50k original miles
  • original paint
  • three little rust spots
  • standard T3 motor
  • sans FI for dual 34 webers

It's truly a time machine back to the early 70's. Up until about 6 months ago it was in storage in Santa Fe, New Mexico for the previous 25 years. A VW mechanic there was given the task of getting it running again. He put new rubber throughout, rebuilt what we would call the top half of the motor, and reworked all the brakes.

Love it! I was on the hunt for a 67-69 Squareback for a while. Still want one if I can find a clean one.

Cool.

I just need a Fasty and a Bus to complete my 'common' collection. I already have a 70 Ghia Vert and a Super Beetle.

Awesome - my pops had a dark blue Squareback. Many good memories of riding around in the back of it before he traded it for a Rabbit. I would love to find one for him to putter in/on.

Yours looks very clean & pretty pristine - great find!
