Didn't try. I was focused on the cab opening up like the Alexander brother's Deora show car.

I don't know if you counted 21 windows but no sunroof, but I saw one once. They offered it to me but I didn't take them up on it. It was sitting at a body shop having been hit in the left rear corner (just like my 1954 barn-door bus but not as hard). No wait, it was 1958 so 23 windows.

I think I counted 17 windows but thought that was an incorrect count for that year so I deferred to the local expert. But between that and the Sahara reply, methinks thou art losing it. Did also like the tilt up front.

You don't know the half of it.


The allowable numbers IIRC are 11, 13(?), 17(?) , 21 and 23 (and of course the panel van). 21 and 23 include the roof portholes. No corner windows with the wide tailgate, so 21.

Not really a Volkswagen, but some source of Audi predecessor.

Brazilian DKW-Vemag Fissore, a regional equivalent to the DKW F-102 which evolved into the 4-stroke Audi F-103.

Just like Auto Union was purchased by Volkswagenwerk AG from Daimler-Benz, Vemag got merged with the Brazilian branch of Volkswagen.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_F103 Interesting that it evolved to the B2 Passat. I always thought that came from the NSU-RO80

Which I think is a fine looking automobile, but it doesn't have the twist-beam axle. I like the way this one is laid open:

That certainly has the Dasher's cowl and MacPherson struts.

Looks like it has a strut instead of springs to hold the hood up. A late model fender with peanut turn indicators?

Any idea what the color is? Mexico Beige?

Need to check the color code on a catalog, but in Brazil it was named Alabaster Beige (bege alabastro).
