    When you said "pickup" I thought you were picking it up - not a single cab that you spotted.
    I cant tell exact year but I would guess late 50's as there are no indicators on the front.
    Welcome to Kombi Club too.

    Hey mick welcome an nice find.
    Should be some numbers stamped in the engine bay area that you can do a search on.
    Looks to be a 50,s model but it has the wrong bumper on the front.
    A few more picks of the rear tail lights an inside the engine bay will help for a better guess.
    Cheers chuck

    We used the model number 26 (pickup) here in Oz too, so not just a US thing. Looks like a 56-59. If you have the rest of the numbers off the ID plate you can date your bus to month/year
