FANTASTIC AND RARE TYPE 4 FASTBACK SURVIVOR...

The Type 4 Fastback was Volkswagens Answer To The Growing Demand To 4 Door, Full Sized Vehicles! Powered By Volkswagens Largest 1795 cc Bosch D-Jetronic Engine Which Kept The Traditional Rear Engine, Air-Cooled, Rear Wheel Drive Concept. These Were Succeeded By The Passat In The USA Market.

As Volkswagen's first 4-door saloon, the Type 4 also introduced unibody construction, coil springs, trailing wishbone rear suspension, hydraulic clutch manual transmission – as well as MacPherson strut front suspension: the 411's front suspension layout was subsequently adopted for the VW Beetle.

In 1972 the engine's twin carb setup was given a shot in the arm courtesy of Bosch D-Jetronic electronically controlled fuel injection which boosted power to 85bhp. With it came a name change to 411LE. That engine was also used in the VW Porsche 914 and also the first 412 when it arrived in August 1972. In the latter application, 0-65mph could be reached in 15 seconds with an accompanying maximum speed of 96mph.

The engine was without any doubt the most successful part of the Type 4 model. It lived on in Porsche 914 until 1976 and the one-year-only 912E (US Market) and finally in the VW Bus and Transporter models until 1982 when it was then highly modified to water cooling and became the “Wasserboxer”.
Visually, this engine was very different compared to the Beetle motor in terms of its cooling shroud, the new 86bhp 1679cc unit was also significantly over square (the pistons and cylinders are much wider than they are long), so it also had a much shorter stroke. This resulted in a more robust engine with lots of low down torque that was able to cruise at high speeds while producing less heat. This engine was designed for powering a bigger, heavier and more refined luxury car.

This Example Was Owned By Its ORIGINAL OWNER For 47 Years!!! What Am Amazing Survivor Piece!
