1961 Workshop Manuals!

Got an ultra rare set of English language 1961 VW Type 3 Workshop manuals from Mr D. this weekend!
fabulous condition!

becuase these things were printed up probably before production began there are all sorts of weird pictures of pre production type 3's - there is even a section set aside for the ill-fated convertible Type 3 !!!!!!
















































Can you spot the VERY peculiar feature in this photo????????????

Yes, It's very strange to find 4 buttons instead of 3!!
I don't know why....

Wahey! We have a winner.

Bertrand was the first to spot the weird 4 button fresh air levers instead of the usual 3 -

wonder how many other weird things I can find in this 61 manual!

The early manuals are full of usefull trivial knowledge. Read the side notes that tell you when a part was discontinued and or replaced by a better one.

Manuals are nice, but you learn more from the real cars. :-P
