I've no idea if that is a reputable seller etc but is that not an original SO2 sales flap high roof?

And does that not make it really quite rare, especially (presumably, being South African) in RHD?

Yes indeed sir! RHD Salesflap !! Uber rare.. 8O

Very nice bus.. Not seen that one before!
Someone here should go and get it.. at 4,5k it's not too expensive either!

Edit: having a closer look, I'm not sure whether the salesflap is original? the hinges are definitely not OG to the bus..

Yep, which made me think it is a real sales flap after all but the hinges are definitely not correct!

Been checking photos on the samba and it doesn't seem to be the right size flap compared to originals either - not far enough below the swage line. It also has a t-handle if you look closely which I haven't seen on other photos.
