Name this car....

Indeed a T1, but it´s only in German language called "Bulli" (from Bus-Lieferwagen) in UK/USA they call it "Splittie" (from split windows).

Volkswagen didn´t have the name rights until 2007, so it was not an official name until then (same with Käfer for the Beetle). The maker of snowcats Kässbohrer had the name rights, they called their snowcats "PistenBully" (And sorry for the name "snowcat", just as a synonym for this kind of vehicle, I think "snowcat" was another makers brandname -> "Tucker Sno-Cat Corporation", sold until 1960).

 

This T1 bus here is not exactely the one of the shown dashboard, it´s even nicer and older, so enjoy.

 

When I checked the market for Samba T1 buses a couple of years ago, I found out they shot like a rockets pricewise, one could also buy a nice Porsche 356 Cabrio for that money. We took a new highspec T5 Multivan Highline instead and even saved some money although that was also in Porsche price regions - insane.

English, 1960s?  Lotus?

Not English, not 60s (but close)

I´m not quite happy with my guess, because I miss a details, but this appears to look like an F 312 P (sort of).

Thats somehow closer although Lotus is somehow closer  than the F 312 P,  too.

To make it clearer: Ronald is closer geographically but John is closer as far as the philosophy of the cars is concerned.

Should be easy now 😉

Not easy. The Abarth 2000 I also had in mind doesn´t exactely look this way but maybe there were series of it I don´t know.

Somebody should mention the right model to proceed (after your larger crop).

This is the very generous crop
