Basically a Type III body shell with different rear quarters and 411 headlights.

The Gol looks like the B2 Passat/Dasher with a shortened C-pillar. The body lines are very close. Probably a lot of the same stampings.
The Santana was also manufactured in China, Brazil, Mexico (as the Corsar, from 1984 and 1988) and Argentina (as the Carat between 1987 and 1991). In Brazil, the Santana station wagon was sold as the Quantum. The Passat saloon and estate were produced in South Africa for their local market until 1987. The production of Passat B2 in China ended in 2012.
A 39-year production history (1973-2012)? Why can't I find the preformed heater hoses?

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?
