Say Goodbye to the Kombi

After 56 years of production, VW of Brazil to stop production of the famed Kombi
August 21, 2013

Brazilian VW Kombi production is slated to come to an end, this July, after 56 years of building this famous cousin to the Beetle. Since 1957, Volkswagen of Brazil has been producing the famous Kombi, and has been the only VW factory to continue building these icons, since 1996, when VW of Mexico ceased its production. As part of this final production, VW will badge these last 600 vans with a special decal, that boldly states "56 Anos - The Kombi Last Edition". These final buses will be painted a two-tone blue-on white, with a matching two-tone interior, and white wall tires. Power will come from a 1400cc liquid-cooled, 78hp engine which has been used for years in South America. As a note, it has been since 2003 that the last VW Beetle came off the assembly line in Mexico. It is sad to see our old friends go away. "Adios Amigo!"
