There was some discussion of this bus on my instagram feed, where I am also posting all these photos.

These photos are all from "Firm friends of the VW transporter", which was published in the late '50s or early '60s. They retouched a bunch of the photos to make the buses look more modern. In this photo, they made it look like it has the roof overhanging the windshields and a rear bumper, but neither look quite right. This is a very early barndoor, like before chassis number 20-02817. It has no upper panel vents, short driprail, etc. It also has three dimensional logos, not just painted logos. It may have been a primer delivered bus, which are possibly the only early buses that didn't have chrome hubcaps.

Chrome hubcaps, and tall mirror arms on both sides.

Steering wheels on the left, and cargo doors on the left.

'55-'57 era Doubledoor kombis? I have never seen a doubledoor kombi earlier than '59. Anyone else seen an early one?
