early bus !
looks like an old British plate, which is fitting, since nearly every half good Barndoor remaining seems to get there Laughing

It is actually one base car that has 3 interchangeable roof sections. Quite clever design.
It also has steering and a forward/stop/reverse mode of the spring driven gearunit.
I stumbled across it on ebay and the set was reasonable priced, considering the near mint condition of the paint after more than 50 yrs.
The Kombi has the same paint pattern as my Kohlruss ( pale yellow/green) but I'm not brave enough to cut in the roof windows in the DUX Confused Very Happy

that is a good idea, which I also had before, too Very Happy
There's an NOS panel roof in the classifieds that I could modify into the complete Kohlruss Window Madness, but I doubt that I will be brave enough to cut in that one either... Laughing
