Maybe I'm a little green on this, but how is this different from any other 1993 Brazil bus?
And BTW, do these have heaters? Or heated defrosters?

They painted it in the colors of the Last Edition Kombi with decals, white walls, white wheels and caps, etc. When VW Brazil stopped making the bus in 2013, they made a special edition that some people have tried to recreate with their older buses for whatever reason.

It's a 9 passenger Stationwagon with a camper bed installed in place of the rear seat. Not too beat up or rusty looking, but that's strong money for a 45 year old used car that likely needs a whole lot of maintenance and attention to be reliable.

At least it has a title, half of the jackasses trying to sell one say "easy to get title". Umm, no, not in this state, it's a total cavity search by people with no sense of humor.

This reminds me and is similar to a Beetle for sale I saw a listing for last week.
The listing stated "Unrestored, all Original". The damn thing had been resprayed 20+ years ago, with a "period correct" interior installed, a 1776 engine, and all throughout his listing, it continued to state the originality.
Yeah, sorry to burst your bubble of confusing bub, but yeah, that's not in original state. Sounds like someone is a little bi-curious.
This ad for the cluster is embarrassing. Not original if refaced, and for $1k you'd think there'd be some clarity, authenticity, and no mention whatsoever of "refacing".
