Did some digging I don't think Ontario went to blue license plates until 1965

The '63 plates from my OG Toronto, Ontario VW are black and similar to those on the Buses.

The Deluxe trim and the late-style upper vents tricked me Smile

I was thinking '61 because no overriders (Euro?) and no semaphores but you make a valid point too.

It does have Sigla glass, do Euros have Sigla?

Some USA spec '59s had blade bumpers, although most got overriders. It was still a separate m-code at that point, but it got put into the standard USA package m-code in '60 or '61. I have seen a USA spec '60 deluxe with Euro blade bumpers. You never see '61 - '67 USA spec buses with Euro blades from the factory.

I have two other photos from that photo shoot with the doors open showing the double flipper in action.

A Euro bus would also have Sekurit glass.
So this is just a 1959 USA/north American spec bus without M175 ram protection (overrider) bumpers.
These are all press photos from the factory, which can be seen in the background of some of the shots. I have seen 4 different pics from this photo shoot.

Thanks for the additional information.
The photo above is supposedly dated 1958 but I don't know if that is accurate or not.
So it very well could be a 1959 USA-style Kombi made in 1958

This group of vintage photos I arranged and shot with my phone a few years ago.

My buddy had asked me if I wanted to tag along while he went a state over to pick up a bay window bus he bought. I jumped at the chance for a road trip. The seller was really cool and we were at his place prob 5 hours. We really hit it off and after the bus was loaded he let us peruse his compound and just go picking. These pictures popped out of a box. He said they were buses he had years ago......

I figured folks here would like to see them. I never get sick of looking at them.
