What about the presumably Brazil-only 2-door Santana

Not sure if there were so many military chassis for the British administrators to clear-off, but anyway, apart from the 4WD ones and the Schwimmwagen, it doesn't seem to have any substantial difference between the civilian and the military chassis.

But hey, turbocharger, supercharger, fuel injection, six-wheel twin-engined all with Type numbers that predate the Schwimmwagen.
Supercharger? Well, considering that one of my favorite features of the Beetle's engine is the absence of timing chains or belts, it wouldn't surprise me if it happened to be crankshaft-driven.
