Scooby was registered in October 2006, generally the last year of availability, but I doo think the air cooled option was still available for part of 2007 although the water cooled variant had come in by then.
Think 'Happyhouse' are a 2007 air cooled?
This must be one of the last air cooled kombis.

Although we have a 2007 plate I think we may have been manufactured in Brazil 2006

The last Aircooled engines were produced in 2005. So it was possible to have a 2006 manufactured Kombi with that engine. Production of the AquaBay commenced in 2006. Danbury bought both variants in 2006 but didn’t sell all of the Aircooleds that year.
The Silver Prata Special Edition was introduced to celebrate the end of the Aircooled engine. Silver paint, black bumpers, tinted glass and darkened indicators and rear lights. Plus a custom sticker.
