Thats awesome!!!

Finally have full confirmation its a '64 not a '65 (had checked the VIN which said it was a '64, but, thought maybe I'd read it wrong). My van was made 19 days (and 26 years) before I was born :D

If only they personalised the photos to the specification of the van more... For example, mine was a dove blue kombi with US bumpers, and they pic is a white kombi, without US spec bumpers :(

I rectified it though :D

I maybe buying a bus at the weekend and I put the M plate details in the decoder and it highlights unknown model, should it highlight at least how many windows etc it should have, also it highlights upper and lower pearl grey however the M plate highlight TK BLW, should all this be a concern to me ? The bus is Turkis in colour. Any info appreciated

Is there one that goes back further than 1959?

No, as m plates were only used from late 58 onwards.
