Slightly off topic but I noticed there is a book coming out soon on the VW Type 4.
There are very few of these left in Ireland, maybe just one runner.

They lacked the charm of the type 3's. Due to their oddball nature they never got the following of the other types.
I didn't think anyone would ever write a book about them but there you go.

Type 4 were not at all popular here.

Even the type 3 Variants were given to VW dealers and used as a dealer car
to make them more popular to potential owners.

We had a 412 LE that was a class car, fuel injected engine it was great.

They were a bit ahead of their time back then...in the dealership I worked in for 6 years or so, I don't ever remember us selling one. The bread and butter sale's were the immortal beetle, ( not surprisisng in a rural area) with Variants largely going to commercial travellers, or Vets. But they were a really great car, and not too plentufull now either.
