Hard to tell from this angle, but looks like it may need a teeeny bit of work. Few more pics and plans ? Don't forget progress reports and pictures. Love to see these old critters brought back to life. =D>

Ok, drama's squashed, let's move on!

The plan is to get it running/driving and go from there. The OG paint underneath is pretty solid, so that's another option. If I decide to turn it, it's no one's business but mine. I own this bitch!! =D> [-X O:) O:) Wink Wink Smile

More pics, right now I'm off to Kannnntukky for a fun trip!

Does that oval window on the passenger side have a logo etched into it?

I like them too, probably will make it a little easier to drive (no plans to get rid of them).

The side window is actually from a 23 Window (early logo, same dot pattern as the BD!). So that means there's a 55 ish Deluxe in the same dealership! The OG paint underneath is pretty strong in some places so some stripping has been done.

It's curved skylight glass? Hard to tell but it looks flat. I ask because I have a similar looking window in the rear corner of my 56 Kombi. Not the same after all.

That's what I thought when I first saw it. Cab divider or Single Cab rear glass.

Cab divider looks like a good bet. SC rear glass is the same as any other pre 64 non deluxe rear glass.
