Puma IndÃºstria de VeÃculos SAâ€™s roots were actually in producing rebodied front-engine DKWs in Brazil, but they managed to make the kit work with some refinement first on the Karmann Ghia and later on the Brasilia. The result was the Puma GT and GTE (export) models â€“ a pretty slick budget Ferrari Dino knockoff that somehow managed to work when so many VW-based customs didnâ€™t. Puma added a convertible version called the GTS in the 1970s and then renamed that model the GTC for 1980, two years before the Brasilia shut down production. Sold as complete cars in South America and later South Africa, some kits were sent to North America â€“ but this one is an original Brazilian build that was imported:

This one appears to be right from the end of Brazilian production of the GT model. You’re not going to fool anyone that this is a Ferrari, but it’s still a clean kit look and it in very good shape. Indeed, rather than looking like a mongrel it is generally well thought out and executed. Would I pay $21,500 for one? These aren’t really my cup of tea, personally, but it’s also not an outrageous price for a rare-to-see aircooled VW.
