I think there has been a nose job here. Later dash as well. I see they are busy closing up the front indicator cut outs too.

Having had a fair look at the pics, that is a f/u of a Fleetline Kombi, which they're trying to represent as an earlier model.

Anyone buying into that abortion is going to cry crocodile tears.

Do you know if they have done any work on this, it looked like it was parked there in that state.

Really Nic? You're slipping old man. Everything I see is consistent with a 60-62 bus with a nose job. It's a German import, since it has a M-plate and the VIN says April 1960.

Admittedly, I'm a little sketchy on this one. I'm seeing telltale signs of panel hacks everywhere. It's definitely had some contributions from a Fleetline.

(Very) late night phone viewing with severe sleep deprivation isn't doing me any favours at this point. :|
