The T1 was produced in Germany until 1967, however, the T1 still was made in Brazil until 1975, when it was modified with a 1968-79 T2-style front end and big 1972-vintage taillights into the so-called "T1.5" and produced until 1996. The Brazilian T1s were not identical to the last German models (the T1.5 was locally produced in Brazil using the 1950s and 1960s-era stamping dies to cut down on retooling, alongside the Beetle/Fusca where the pre-1965 body style was retained), though they sported some characteristic features of the T1a, such as the cargo doors and 5-stud (205 mm bolt circle) rims. Brazil production air-cooled vehicles (including the VW Brasilia) are a rare find and usually sought after by collectors.
Among Volkswagen enthusiasts, it is common to refer to the different models by the number of their windows. The basic Kombi or Bus had 11-windows. Deluxe models had 15-windows, but was temporary available in Europe. The sunroof deluxe versions had eight skylight windows and is known as the 23-window. A 13-window and 21-window version were produced starting in 1963.
This beautiful kombi from 1975 was found by accident, hidden in a barn behind closed doors and covered under a plastic. The proud owner was able to manage a 'placa preta' which means a black licence plate. Only oldtimers with more than 85% of originality will receive this special licence plate, which makes it very interesting as a collectors item because of it's historic value. This kombi is in a very good shape. New paint, engine working perfect and many other. We ordered a set of seats from this period and did a makeover with a nice retro leather fresh look including the decoration panels.
