Re: VW Museum in Uitenhague
its called a 1021 "ten twenty-one" is how its pronounced
its on a beetle chassis and were 3 or 4 prototypes that were build locally designed
then the golf 1 came out literally weeks after the first few were built and the project was scrapped
its 1600 aircooled and only 2 are known about today of which one is a double cab
thats about all i can remember from the signboard next to it
no pics of type 4 sorry

Re: VW Museum in Uitenhague
Hi Nick

The 1021 was locally designed, By August Jukel and his team, it was to be the SA "Citi Golf" of the beetle, more modern but still the basic beetle, it is Fibre glass. I saw the other one when we were in PE/ Uitenhage a few years ago, was still been driven by a local fisherman/farmer.

August and his team were also the guys who brought us the Citi golf and the SA big window buses, they developed and designed all the SA only Vehicle, but all has to be approve by VW AG.

Ian, augusts son is on our other forum, he still Works at VW in The Motorsport Team, August has retired.

Thanks Stuart, that's interesting.

On the subject of Volkswagen derivatives, Brazil of course had a host of them and one of my favourites has to be the Miura Sport dating back to 1981. This had a Passat 1.6 mounted in the rear.

That is a stunner, there was also the SP2, beetle version of a sports car, also fantastic. not to mention the puma's and the MP Lafer that was a MG copy with Vw mechanicals, and the Gol that looked like a golf but with the beetle motor up front.

Now that is a sweet ride. I'd definitely roll in one of those.

Stuart, I assume you are using the term "beetle" rather loosely in this context, as the SP2 was really based on the Volkswagen Type 3 1600 Variant but with a 1700 motor.
