This thrifty, durable, economical and comfortable breeze block spread all over the world and for good reason but the ravages of time have taken their toll and finding a good’en is no easy feat.
A spacious compartment with little engine noise or heat and a surprisingly refined drive thanks to its rear engine and independently sprung suspension the VW Transporter went everywhere and carried everything from people, parcels and flowers to frozen fish.
As Splitty interest and values go stratospheric and Bays continue their upward spiral, inevitably there’s been a knock-on effect on their successors, including the T3.
Continuing VW traditions like the air-cooled engine, its position in the back– and chrome bumper bars it’s this thread of continuity that makes the T3 so appealing to stalwarts, and chrome bumper models are particularly sought after.
Well-presented, the car offered is an Australian delivered 1990 VW T3 Transporter Dual Cab and this one appears to have never worked a day in its life, expertly preserved and maintained in Medium Blue over Grey Velour.
Offered with its original Captain seats fitted to the drivers and passenger sides, comfort steering-wheel, fold-down side and rear bed sides and chrome bumpers along with the silky optional automatic transmission and an upgraded CD player this late production T3 is quite a rare find.
Freshly serviced and in excellent running condition, the drive of this parctical T3 is smooth and a short stint behind the comfort steering wheel with near flawless 360⁰ views of the outside world around you highlights why these sold and continue to sell so well.
There’s a saying that goes, “if anyone ever offers you a drive of their T3 - take them up on it. Be warned though - you might not want to give it back” and it’s true. With modern comfort and convenience blended with retro styling available at an accessible price point, there isn’t much else that beats the characterful VW Transporter.
