They both look like post-1973 Bay-Window VW Buses.

Those square directional signals and 5-mph safety bumpers were standard in Portugal too?

Yes, this is an European version.

It seems also used in Germany and in Netherlands (which is the country of this one) according to the Wikipedia pages.

'Busje' is actually slang for any type of van in Dutch....

The version after 1972 (square turn signals, safety bumpers) is called T2b. The version 1967 to 1972 is a T2a.

In Germany most people call a VW Bus/Transporter/Vanagon "Bulli" (sometimes even the T4 and T5). This nickname is very common, but VW was never allowed to use it officially, because the neme "Bulli" was reserved by annother company.
