More of a Blit than a Bay Wink

Interesting bus with a mixed personality, I would love it.

'76 was the first year they produced bays in Brazil. the rear corner windows are used in this model because the back of the bus is equal to splits, can't apply them in european bays unless you move the vents

Looks very similar to this one produced in Argentina in the 80s. This has the late bay rear end, an early hatch, and the dual barn doors.

It has independent rear suspension with reduction gear boxes and U-joint's instead of cv's. The handbrake looks like a splitty one. The front end has king pins. It is really all thrown together from different years. It look's like the factory was using whatever they had lying around
