There were many versions of Brazilias, most based on combinations of Type 
3 and Type 4 bodies and parts, but I've even seen one that was basically a 
Rabbit body on a Beetle pan. Brazilia was what I was expecting when I saw 
the 4 headlights, but this one lacks the Brazilia label on the back, something 
all the others had. The label I can see reads VW1600, but it could be 1800.  

This one is also quite early. He calls it a 1970, but he could be completely 
wrong about that. I sincerely doubt if VW do Brazil was making Type 3 
engines with alternators that early, but anything's possible.

He also seems to be saying it has zero km on it.
