Hi all Smile

I just bought a T1 from Turkey,

According to chasis number it is made in 1952 (chasis number starting

20035----)

But, some changes happened in the past I think.

I need your experience Smile

The nose and rear look like they have been replaced with post barndoor parts, but I'm no expert.

It looks like a 1962 model to me, not 1952.

Can you post a photo of the VIN plate?

A barndoor VIN plate looks like this with "-20-" prefix

I don't see a single thing on the bus that makes me think it's an updated/ modified barndoor

You are right and I saw the hinge too but then saw the fuel gauge and was looking at the dog legs and rear wheel wells and got all mixed up. Embarassed Smile

High hinge went into the early 61 (model year) though, if we want to get super anal Smile

It definitely has a mixture of parts...
