The VW T3 from Volkswagen was the third generation of the VW van. It was produced from 1979 to 1992 and was the last transporter series with rear-wheel drive. After the VW 411/412 from 1968, the T3 was the last new development of a vehicle from Volkswagen with air-cooled rear engine. Like all VW buses, the third generation also bore the type designation Type 2. Within this series, the individual models T1, T2 and T3 were numbered internally.
