I spent a few hours on the Internet and found these pictures. This bus was converted to 4WD with what looks like a conglomeration of 4WD Vanagon componants and what looks like a '60's differential up front. The square windows, narrow tailgate, louvers back of the rear fenders instead of the vents behind the back side windows and the old type side doors are appearantly still a standard offering, as I'd seen them on other similar late buses. It might even have an upright-fan engine rather than the 914/Type4 suitcase type. There's even a transfer lever by the gear shift like on other 4X4's. A rig like this with doors on both sides would be my dream bus. A pair of platform trucks consisting of single cab and a double cab each with the 4WD would round out my dream fleet. I had to flip a coin to decide whether or not to check "Bay Window(68-79)" in the catagories because the bus is a lot newer than a '79 and only the cab, tail lights and running gear are bay window while the bumpers and the body from the back of the the cab rearward is all "split". My only real question is how is the speedometer hooked up and can the front suspension handle the added stress?

02/23/12 Matheus Koslosky from Brazil This bus is a prototype built by Dacunha Veculos. Two were built, and this was for sale.

12/15/05 DON 'The Emissary' SERIBUTRA The bus pics are the T1.5s produced in Brasil between 1976-1996. Although the first generation T2s ceased production in Europe in 1967, the splittie continued in Brasil until 1975. When the 1976 model year came along, the first generation T1 was modified to which the front sheetmetal from the 1968-79 Bay Window was grafted on where a few refer to these Buses as mutants.

Kombi 4x4 was developed for Dacunha Mobiles in association with QT Engineering and Equipaments (in 1980 and 1985 in Brazil). They develop one new 4 wd traction to be used with Volkswagen engine. The system was created for use in dirt roads, in rains seasons or difficult trespassing grounds. They build two and make fields tests but the Volkswagen was not interested. It could have been a nice option for off-road actions and travel with our bus. Kombi 4x4 foi desenvolvida pela Dacunha Veculos associado QT Engenharia e Equipamentos ( em 1980 e 1985 ), desenvolveram um novo sistema de trao total aplicado mecnica Volkswagen. A Dacunha/QT, visava diversificao na aplicao do sistema de trao integral, com vistas ao mercado rural. Foram fabricadas apenas 2 unidades da Kombi 4x4. O resultado das modificaes foi positivo, em ladeiras, mesmo secas, onde a tendncia ao patinamento irreversvel, um simples toque na alavanca propicia uma sada imediata, sem titubeios. O sistema no produz rudos estranhos e provoca pouca perda de torque no motor quando acionado e no altera o relativo conforto da suspeno original. A Kombi 4x4 provou que poderia ter sido uma importante aliada nas operaes em estradas no rotineiras, em estaes chuvosas, em stios e para comrico em estradas do Interior. Dados: Motor3 Out/85
