This is a 1960 MY although possibly built in 1959. 1960 was the 1st year for a VW produced double cab, anything prior was coach built by Binz.

Good luck with the sale, looks a lovely truck.

Thanks for the comments and info.( Interesting)
It saddens me to say goodbye but I've always wanted a ribbed bumper panel.
