    G-Day All,

    I am about to start a resto on a Splitty and before I go trying to get panels and parts sorted I was hoping that someone can confirm the year model for me?

    It was a Dove Blue panel that has been converted into a camper.

    Chassis Number (drivers side of engine bay) - 16 38 39

    Letters and number on passenger side of engine bay - M K A D V 1 5 7 3

    Brass Plaque with 'Made in Western Germany' above rear valance on passenger side.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Matty

    Hello everyone! I have just taken delivery of my first split screen(11 window with semaphores). I was hoping someone may be able to help identify a month and year for me to assist in procuring parts. The number on the righthand side of the engine bay is 552409. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards,

    Andrew

    Hey Splitbus - are you sure ? I was told from 65 onwards there was a prefix starting with 2x depending on the bus type ?

    As I have a split with chassis number 1082230 - which I was told was a 1963 ? Which could make his model also a 63 just like his user name ?

    Guys - I had this posted elsewhere on the site - can anyone confirm details are as I suspect with regards year etc.....

    I've got a Jan 56 11 Window, MK body number 17009. (As best I can make out!, seen some with 4 digit numbers and prefixed with DV etc for delivery van) does this look correct? The VIN plate is missing. The chassis number 159215 so dates back to manufactured in Nov 55 but I thought in 55 they had a 20- prefix ? chassis number is definitely only 6 digits? It's got some throw back parts from barndoor days, like the tubular gearbox cradle, so ties in with the mix match of parts that were used on buses from that time.
    Would love to here from some of you guys who have some early buses, and confirm some of these things, particularly cross over late 55 to early 56

    Can anyone else confirm the 20- prefix missing on their early 56 CKDs?
