Wow!  Stretched 4  door VW. back then! Twin suicide doors. Flathead V8 in back air cooled? I believe designer was German/Polish or Russian.?  JB may tell us.

Mr Cole wrote in a long back issue about the origin, and even met descendants  of John Tjaarda the designer

I believe Ferdinand Porsche and Henry Ford both bought into the design, I have on occasion to visit a 

classic VW gathering and try to explain the heritage..pretty neat..
