Supposedly all these Polo, Gol, Parati, Saviero are the same platform, namely the BX platform. This is not to be confused with the B1 platform, which was the original Passat/Dasher.In the front or the rear? (Because I once saw what looked like a Rabbit/Golf with a type 1 engine in the rear.) Could this have been one of your early Polos?
I've seen photos (god only knows where) of allegedly FRONT engined sedan-type aircooleds, also. I would love to see a website somewhere officially documenting the oddballs produced by Volkswagen do Brasil.
The Brazilian Gol had a front engined aircooled Type1. I wouldn't like to say if it was a Polo or Golf body - though I tend to think it was Golf.
They made a Polo Sprint - a squareback Polo with a 1900cc rear-mounted flat four watercooled digijet producing 136hp. Since our Polo scrabbles its front wheels on 45hp, I think they were wise to rear-mount the engine!
