The Volkswagen Type 3 was a compact car ( C-segment in Europe ) manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen from 1961 to 1973. Introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) , the Type 3 was marketed as the Volkswagen 1500 and later the Volkswagen 1600 , in three body styles: two-door Notchback , Fastback and Squareback , the latter marketed as the 'Variant' in most markets, and 'Squareback' in the United States.

The Type 3 diversified Volkswagen's product range beyond the existing models – the Type 1 (Beetle) , Type 14 Karmann Ghia , Type 2 (Bus)  – while retaining much of the Volkswagen Beetle's engineering principles, notably the air-cooled rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout , and the all round torsion bar suspension on the same 240cm wheelbase.

The Type 3 followed the Type 1, utilizing a low-profile version of Volkswagen's rear-engined, 4-cylinder air-cooled engine, as well as body-on-chassis construction while featuring ponton styling in contrast to the Type 1's articulated fender and running board. VW finalized the design by 1959 with prototypes ready for testing by 1960. Secrecy was such that even at the 1960 Geneva Auto Show, VW denied they were readying a new design. In 1961 VW announced the new line as the "VW 1500".
