Description

The Sunagon is a Volkswagen Transporter 3 from 1979-1992. In America it was called Vanagon and the pun Sunagon came from the high-raising roof "to the sun". The casting is a very special adaption from the "Sondermodell" Joker in the early-80´s.

The original casting was not used in the USA anymore after the 1983 "Extras" release, but it continued to be issued in Mexico during 1985, 1986, and 1987.  The casting was remade (retooled) and debuted in 2011 where it continues to be released to the present year, 2013.
