Here's a link to a YouTube Variant where there's a guy trying, I think, to sell 
a very unusual 1970 VW Variant.


Note the following differences:

Gas filler on left

LONG rear side window with extra vent window

4 headlights, odd trunk lid w/odd springs, single circuit brake reservoir

Smooth bumpers w/overriders

Type 3 dual carb engine, with alternator (heater horns on fan housing not 

LHD, wood grain dash, with unusual instruments

Odd location for door jamb interior light switch

Are those Type 4 taillights, or 914s?

Beetle rear door handle

It'a a cute car; I'm guessing Brazilian. They guy's probably speaking 
Portugese, but could be Spanish. I can't tell. Anyone understand what he's
