Re: [T3] 73 SQ suspension.


If you really had a squareback with struts, it was a Type 4. They
overlapped for a number of years  as the 411 early, 412 late. It was
the culmination of where VW was headed with the aircooleds, and served
as a bit of a bridge between the body-on-pan of the T1 and T3 and the
future unibody FWD waterpumpers. It was a rear-engined unibody
aircooled with struts up front. An evolutionary step.

Restoring one of these babies is probably a bigger challenge than our
T3s owing to their relative rarity. I personally haven't seen one in
years, but I haven't been going to shows much either.
