This economical and reliable little T3 transporter was made from 1979 onwards. The completely redeveloped vehicle with its practical modern shape was visibly roomier than its predecessors. As the last rear-engined type made by VW, it was regarded as the last real "bully". The 4-cylinder engine offered 50 to 112 bhp according to the version. As usual the transporter appeared as various commercial vehicle versions and also in the form of a camper for private use. In particular the successful "Joker" version from the Westfalia company in Gutersloh, with whom VW had been cooperating since the 1950s, enjoyed great popularity. The Westfalia Joker was eminently suitable as a multi-function vehicle for traveling to work, for routine daily use, and also for longer holiday journeys. Sales in excess of 70,000 of this "home on wheels" vouch for its great popularity at home and abroad. Its comfortable living space with integral driver's cab had a complete kitchen unit, seats and beds, storage cupboards and a practical rising roof.
