Just A Car Guy: coolest thing I saw today while using back streets to go to the post office to mail out bills (you see the coolest things in the residential neighborhoods you've never been in before)

I wonder how a URL like "/justacarguy.blogspot.com/2020/04/coolest-thing-i-saw-today-while-using.html" expands to the full title. ???

I'll let cRiPpLe_rOoStEr do it. I'd have to look it up.

The 411 had higher headlight and wrap-around taillights. This has headlights more like a 412.

But the one-piece rear quarter windows looks like a modification.

There was no Typ4 made in Brazil, that's a local version of the Typ3. As far as the one-piece rear quarter windows, AFAIK some had it stock but in this one it's a modification.
