very similiar to a rat a friend of mine found in Eustice in NSW...a 1961 50/50 model.

It's a good find. I find it amazing- there is still VW stuff to learn. Your car has all Oval stuff under the bonnet(fuel tank,brake fluid pot, infuse holder) but has no semaphores. It also has the later flasher switch. Pretty sure the cable operated fuel gauge was always an accessory.An Auntie of mine bought a 58 brand new and it had all the Oval features( including semaphores) but had the big back window. She had indicator lights fitted soon after purchasing it.It's in the Birdwood Motor museum now.Well done.

The rust is only in the drivers side floor and not so bad
