Thanks,yes,thats the heater,ex fire vans were usual the most basic factory model(minimum options),so they usually had no glovebox lid,or the centre panel which on optioned up ones would cover heater box,same with the grey door shuts/interior,they were supplied to conversion companies grey(cheapest color bulk ordered) then painted red by conversion company.

Thanks for info Fred,didnt realize little things made an SVO. Wonder how long before its mentioned in "For Sale"ads as another price bump on German Fire Vans? (personaly feel it would be like adding "Supplied In a Unique shade of black!"to a Model T ad)

Just checked vin plate,mine hasnt got SVO stamped on it,maybe its cos its an early mk1?,there 10 years,one facelift,1 model change,numerous mechanical changes between the two vans,both are bachert conversions. It has got a zip in the headlining and a spot welded bracket for siren relay on o/s inner wing( in engine bay),which are later model(ie mk2) SVO optons. Ive seen on ebay gmbh conversions from around 76 with red interiors so maybe they used what was avaliable at the time,also had custom interior trim.(red interior paint should mean not SVO?) Got all original build sheet from Bachert with mine,even down to VW guarantee for"type 121"pump motor( probabily why there not usually still in vans,sell the pump,pay for the van!). Really need to see a German market Transit sales brochure/SVO list for 1968 vans,I know they changed head design in august 67,hence blue engine to denote new version in mine( its may 68),all no.s match from chassis/engine,plate and all paperwork,codes are right for engine variant etc.but no SVO on vin
