What’s in the garage? Or better what’s no longer in the garage….. can you see it??? Real cool; treasure hunting!


Last Sunday I went on a very special mission… I had to get a car out of a garage! Can You see it already? Treasure hunting Bob Style…

Let’s get closer….

More closer, can You see it now… lurking???

a cool late-model Type Three… isn’t this nice???

And its out! Incredible… read on to get the complete story….

This car was bought brand new by Mr. René. He passed away couple of years ago but his children always took good care, started it up regularly and washed it times to times… featuring original 53.000km this is a real cool and very original car. there is absolutely no trace of rust NO PLACE!! all the weak spots they look like NEW… Paint is all original with some minor touch ups…

When the children thought about selling the VW Gods pointed them my direction, and I was the only one that was able to buy this car!

On the trailer and ready to go… this poor baby might not know what’s happening! It was 47 years in this house, in this neighbourhood…

53.000 original km, last service in 1986 and full service notes! The original registration card (I never saw that before from a French car) and a super cool history!

This car hardly drove in the rain… when it rained Mr.René prefered to leave the car inside and drive his Solex motor bicycle. he preffered he went wet and the car stayed dry… one time he drove it to work when snow surprised him, there was about 0.5cm of snow on the car when he came out of the factory… he was all over his boiling point!!! He drove home and dried literally the car from 5 to 10pm (a mere 5 hrs!!) with an hairdryer!! Imagine!!

Aren’t they beautiful when this original???

This car will be for sale soon, as I can’t keep them all.. unfortunately… if you’re fancy a low mileage all original and crazy history Type 3 square back just contact me on Bob@BBT4vw.com

  1. Bonjour Mr BOB
    je suis le fils de Mr HERMETZ René , depuis hier je parcours votre site ,j ai revu la voiture de mon père ( dit Titine ) avec une grande émotion , de où il se trouve, il ne peut être que fière qu elle soit tombé dans d’ aussi bonnes mains . Vous avez fait un travail remarquable sur le parcours et l’ histoire de sa voiture. J’ espère que le prochaine acheteur en prendra soin comme lui . si elle quitte votre pays et si vous le voulez bien pourriez- vous me communiquer sa destination.
    Cordialement Mr HERMETZ Francis .
