Club Information

Post by Editor » 13th October 2004 - 5:39pm

The Volkswagen Type 3 & 4 Club is the UK's national club and register for these models, which VW produced in the 1960s and 1970s.

Car models:
If you own a Notchback, Fastback, Variant (Squareback), 411 or 412, or Type 3 Karmann-Ghia (razor-edge), this is your club. With about 120 members all over the UK, and a few abroad too, there is likely to be a fellow enthusiast not too far away.

Help, advice and parts:
Members can obtain advice, ideas, help and spares to maintain, repair and restore their cars. We have factory manuals and parts books to solve many obscure problems and can advise on the correct parts numbers for specific models, repair techniques and service information.

The club can also supply valuations and certificates to help with insurance and registration matters.

There is a stock of club-owned parts available economically, and we can advise where to locate ‘difficult’ items. The club also has a free-loan members' video library of VW training films and general interest material with the accent on VW.

Publications:
Membership lists are published every year in the Yearbook, with details of help available. Newsletters containing articles and information about the Types 3 and 4 are posted to full members about every 3 months.

The Technical Manual is a large format 85-page loose-leaf manual containing technical articles, illustrations and additional data from some 18 years of Club magazines and other sources. Further pages to update and extend the manual will be issued from time to time. A copy of the Technical Manual is sent to all new full members.

Advertising items For Sale or Wanted in the publications is free; simply phone, write or e-mail Dave Hall, the editor. This service is also available to non-members. You may also post on the Club Forum.

Special events:
Apart from meeting at VW shows, there are club workshops, social events and visits organised from time to time, depending on demand. At these events you will find a friendly ear for all those memories, reminiscences and anecdotes concerning Type 3 and Type 4 VWs, and discover things you never knew about the cars.

The Club Stand:
This is set up at major VW events in the UK, and offers club regalia, spares specific to Type 3 and 4 VWs, sales of parts on commission, and information and advice on parts and technical matters.

We expect the club stand to be at the following events:-

Stanford Hall (Leics); www.stanfordhallvw.co.uk
Stonor Park (Henley on Thames, Nr Maidenhead); www.britishvwevents.com
Expo (Hop Farm, Kent); www.abvwc.org.uk
British VW Festival (Malvern, Worcestershire); www.bvwf.org.uk
VW Action (Santa Pod, Bedfordshire); www.vwaction.co.uk

There will also be line-ups arranged at other VW shows

Come and Join us!
