Ford had an assembly factory in Brazil a hundred years ago? I don't think that's factual. Ford built a rubber plantation and named it 'Fordlandia' so they could produce their own tires but it was a dismal failure.

The legend says that UMM Alter chassis was the toughest in the market and went on to inspire a generation of Nissan Patrol... Anyway it was a cool off road vehicle that made a bright presence in the Dakar rally...

Amazing video! The only mistake is that there are now two Pumas. One is the South African Puma, that making this Dakar prototype like vehicle, and the other is the Brazilian one, that is making the Luminari and other small sports cars.

Adding all of that stuff to the Puma shell wasn’t a big deal. These are VW Type 1s we’re talking about: most of the mechanical parts are attached to the chassis (or as the ethusiasts call it, floorpan or pan), while the body shell is a separate piece. That’s part of the reason that there were so many European coachbuilders who built cars on these chassis after the war (including Karmann themselves) and so many kit cars have been based on it over the years. All a Puma owner would have to do is find a donor Ghia, get it running if it wasn’t already, unbolt the Ghia shell, and attach the Puma shell. It’s actually possible to run a Type 1 chassis with no body attached to it (which quite a few people did before the Manx-type was invented), that’s how modular the design is.
