Description

The Custom '69 Volkswagen Variant later known as the Custom '69 Volkswagen Squareback is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the 2010 Hot Wheels Delivery: Slick Rides Series. The Hot Wheels version depicts a panel delivery wagon version of the Volkswagen Type 3. In reality, the panel version is the rarest of all Type 3's, being produced only in Germany and Australia. It was in the same family as the Fastback and Notchback. It was also mechanically similar and was sold alongside the successful sports car the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia.

Trivia

  • The real car was only called Squareback in the USA and Canada, it was known elsewhere as the Variant. The panel version was not sold sold in the USA, most likely due to the Chicken Tax .
  • The Hot Wheels version depicts the German-made car as it is Left-Hand-Drive, rather than the version built in Australia from a complete-knock-down kit .
