Anyone know anything about MMM 221L, 411 variant?

Post by 4ordinary » 25th November 2012 - 12:39am

I have recently aquired said vehicle and wondered if anyone recognises it or knows anything about its past.. :?:

Its a Clementine orange Variant with orange plastic windows, so its fairly recognisable :lol:


The sellers advert described it as an "ex feature car", anyone remember seeing it in a mag or something in the past?
If anyone knows any snippets of its history I would love to hear it. 8)

Hi. I think I remember this. Assume from the yellow windows its the same car? It was a full feature in Total VW magazine early year 2000.

Hi George, thanks for the photo and info! It does indeed appear to be the same car. Time to see if I can track down a copy of that Total Vw then!

Cheers dude :)

Well, thanks to the tip offs on here and a nice man on Early Bay, I managed to track down said magazine! :D

Loads of interesting stuff in there, and it cleared up the mystery of why the engine bay had been hacked about....apparantly it had a Ford engine in for a while :\

A little sneak preview of the new look... ;)
