Re: [T3] Type 3 sighting in Jerusalem!


If that car was a Type3 Variant panel van it was rare even in the 1960s and
1970s when they were made but being a commercial vehicle they lead a tough life
and so few have survived to this day.  If you see it again, please try to take
a photo of it.  The Type3 panel van is extremely rare nowdays.
