Recently, I have been fixing and restoring our Splitty and Baywindow buses and been into these for a lately. As such, I have noticed two sticky topics on the projects, restorations and build threads of the Sambanistas’ respective projects on those fora. Thereupon, I checked the Type 3 Forum and noticed that there is no the same sticky topic relative to the projects, restorations, preservations and build threads of the Type 3 Volkswagens. Hence, I colated the project and build threads that are posted here on the Type 3 Forum to which I went back about one and a half years to gather these threads.

Henceforth, I devided the build threads to what type 3 it belongs (Notchback, Fastback, Squareback and Type 34), and I also grouped they to the year models. I hope this helps us see what are the Type 3 projects of our Sambanistas and if this can be a sticky topic or to any appropriate topic this may be included. Some projects does not state the year model so I placed them in the year model group based on the posts and replies on the specific threads. This can be remedies later on.

In case I missed out someone else’s build thread, you can post it here and hopefully we can have it included here.

We do not have a "1962" year model for a Squareback.

This one is a '62.

I have a feeling there will be mixed opinions about this, but I have a build thread (on another forum) for my project where I'm stuffing a Miata under my '67 Squareback body. It's pretty early into the project and I've only worked on the Miata so far, but you can see the build here: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/build-proj...906/page1/

I'm basically following in the footsteps of this dude who has already done the same thing, only with a '68 Fastback: https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/build-proj...051/page1/

It's probably not for everyone but still interesting, of course.
I can add it as a link.
What do you want the link title to be?

1967 Squareback chassis swapped with a '90 Miata

Or ?

Mines more of a preservation than a restoration, as I am keeping all the patina, but it’s still going to have a lot of work. May be of interest for someone...
