On December 20 2013 VW Brazil ended production of the VW microbus. The bus had been in production in Brazil since 1957. As a final farewell 1200 units were produced as "Final Edition" and given a special blue and white paint scheme. Yes that is a radiator grill on the front as the latest buses were water cooled and featured many amenities of modern autos. Bid a final fare well to this automotive legend by building and displaying this fantastic model.
