    I found an add where that Kombi was advertised as a 1953 made in germany rust brown in colour. :lol: boy have you got some work to do.

    Samba says march 1955 but I don't believe that records like paint colours are always collected properly for historical purposes. They may have started building and by the time they entered the states it may have been 1955 who knows.

    According to samba it should be 20-121078?????????????

    you have to call this one rusty when u name it.

    It's a CKD kit from Germany, put together in Australia in late 1956, for the 1957 market
    11 window Kombi.
