A Gurgel? Sounds like something from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy". Where is this thing manufactured? You rteally found a weird one, Harry! I was totally stumped.

They were made Brazil, mostly with VW underpinnings.The one Harry selected this time is the dismal swansong of the company. Gurgel built some nice beach buggys and beetle-based replicas in its days. I believe the most popular one would be the Xavante, which was a veritable VW Thing alternative.:

Or well travelled. You can't avoid seeing Gurgels when you are in Brazil. They are surprisingly popular there.

This Xavante looks downright COOL! I'm diggin' those freestanding headlights. I've never seen one of these either, but then I've never Gurgeled in Brazil... :P
