'65 1500S Notchback

The term 'notchback' refers to the the mid-point between a saloon and a coupé - a three-box design where the rear window slopes to such a degree that the third box is less pronounced than usual. Think mkIII Escort or, of course, the Type 3 Volkswagen.
This 1965 VW 1500S, probably the only car model that's actually commonly referred to as a notchback, has been prepared by the charmingly-monikered Balls Deep Crew, a Finnish collective with an eye for classically styled Volkswagens. As you can see, all a solid Type 3 requires is a healthy drop over the right wheels, and a whole lot of polish. Looks great, doesn't it?
