Type III flatmotor? Pickup truck?

Here's how they do it in Brazil, IDK if cRiPpLe_rOoStEr has seen any.



The back of the cab is cut to the contour of the seatback inside, the crown in the roof is retained but it is concaved just ahead to give a spoiler effect.

The only Beetle truck conversions that I have seen were fiberglass-bodied and retained the Type 1 engine.

That might be quite strange to ride. The 4-into-3 exhaust is quite curious too...

Believe it or not, this used to be an actual taxi in Porto Alegre, yet when I took these pictures in March this had already been out of service, yet the livery was kept for historic purposes...
