Are you in Australia then Andy?.....
......this will limit your options on which MM mark if you're buying here as not many come up at all.

If you are importing from the UK/Europe then obviously you will have a lot more choice.

So England is still home or are you permanently based in Sydney?. If you are buying in the UK then you should have more choice and I'd agree that the Mk4 is the most practical with the rear hatch but they don't look as good/classic as the early cars - though the differences are not detectable to anybody who doesn't know the cars that well -

I have a Mk4 myself and it was an everyday car year round initially and the hatch was really useful...particulalry as I also had a rear wash wipe fitted which helped for rear vision.

I think If you could find a Mk3 with a rear hatch option that would be the best of both worlds - even more so if fitted with the early type dash board to keep it looking realy period.

Good luck with the search and you'd be hoping to spend a good bit of time in the Uk to get some decent use out of it....unless you want the old man to have all the fun!?

Hi all
While iv been learning as much as I can about the different MKs I returned to looking at the Mk3 chassis number 7418 which I saw in country NSW Australia and I noticed the site now says this very car ran at the 1967 Targa Florio. I have to say I was regretting not buying it after reading it had race history even though the lack of a NSW registration document was a problem. Then I got to thinking the other MK3 I was lucky enough to sit in was chassis number 7057 one of the 50 FIA homologated cars built in January of 1968, there is also a dashboard difference with 7057 having the round centre instrument pod and 7418 having a straight flat dashboard. Anyway are my ramblings making sense surely the Florio car must be a much early chassis number.

Interesting about the Targa Florio cars, I have not heard of that but I can confirm that the Mk2 MM chassis 7050 that I owned for 30 years and was purchased by its builder in 1966 and registered in 1967 also had the central dash.
