Those pictures were taken on the west coast of Mexico in 1955 on a caravan from Arizona to Guadalajara. They took the scenic route.

The massive decal's are heavy. I think the weigh about 10kg each.
The current state is absolute fenomenal, no pitting of chips in the chrome.

Here's a photo to see how big the decal really is.

This is the decal used on the nose.

The oldest "Kölsch" brewery in Cologne.
Kölsch is a beer from Cologne (kölsch = kölnisch = aus Köln = from Cologne).

Wow! Sorry to dig up a really old post, but this is the first time I have seen this, and I agree, this does look an awful lot like the Green Flash.
The wheel arch trim path looks identical. The Green Flash looks like it has has holes in the nose exactly where the antenna is mounted on this picture.
Pretty darned convincing!
Has Malik seen this picture?

Looks like the 'green flash' samba. Same green? Same arch trim/design.


Hey I think you are right! Malik...it looks like the mirror arm on your deluxe here...

I wonder if it's some sort of aftermarket/home made vent? I always wondered why VW didn't incorporate crotch cooler vents into buses.

We reckon these rhd Barndoors are Nigerian.
LA = Lagos, Nigeria's capital.
Nigeria changed from rhd to lhd in 1972.
Nigeria, a former British colony, gained independence in 1960.
Very British-looking plates.

All correct. Nigeria used the same typeface letters and formats as the UK.
