VW Beetle with a controversial makeshift convertible bodywork

I often see this '67 Beetle in my hometown, with its controversial bodywork. Originally a regular fixed-roof Beetle, as all the Brazilian-made ones (the locally-made convertibles were aftermarket jobs), it also had the doors welded and cut a little above the floor pan, with all the enclosure provided by means of plastic roll-up windows and the canvas roof. Sure it's not as good-looking as an authentic Käfer Karmann or a Hebmüller...


  1. I still see this Fusca once in a while in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
