That pearl white ruby red kombi is quite stunning Shocked

It looks like a colorized black-and-white photo. Bus was likely PG/SG.

My brother and my mom, circa 1984, with his mouse gray '64. KAN 853 was towed to a salvage yard when my brother semi-abandoned it. My little sister paid to get it out and drove it for years. She sold it when the brakes went out to a crackhead couple who had it parked, covered in pine needles, for years. The bus moved away when they left Los Osos. Wonder who has it now?

^ ^ "Eichamt" is the government bureau of measurements and standards. W license plate and plate color is probably Vienna, Austria (W is Wien, how Vienna is spelled in German; pronounced "Veen"). Eichamt would sound like "I shumpt".

Early powered LP VW? It doesn't quite look like a notchback, but maybe it is?

My friend in Arlington sent me another photo of his 1960 Standard in 1969.
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

What he said:
"When I first moved to Washington in June 1969, I bought a 1960 VW bus with 3 windows on each side. I did the interior, had it painted and drove it for 6 months as it was breaking down faster than I could put it back together including the master cylinder and the transaxle. Purchase price $300. Sold it for $1150 to a girl named Ducky who drove it to Mexico. Never saw her or it again. Fun times...".
