This 1964 VW Notchback Type S was purchased in the spring of 2004 in Pasadena, California
(which is in Los Angeles County). It was found by chance, just
driving through the neighborhood. The previous owner had the car for
about 5 years. He did a lot of restoration work and got the car to
it's current condition. The car has been garaged and is not 100% concours perfect, but is very nice and receives compliments every time it is taken out. I haven't done much to it, other than
the regular maintenance, which has been performed by Blodgett's Bug Barn, here in San Bernardino. After a bit of research I found out that the Notchback is quite rare in the US as it was only sold in Canada and Europe. This Type 3 has an 1835 c.c. engine with a four speed stick that runs strong and always gets us where we're goin'. Overall, there's nothing really stand-out about the car, except for the color of
the paint, which is best described as a pale purple-silver metallic.
Basically it's just a real nice, clean Southern California driver.
