If you do, then it's 1961-62

@dsl; Set late November 1960, it's not too early for a 1961 model. The trafficators would be just a shadow (of doubt). Colour would be the L456 Ruby Red available for 1961-67 Typ1. Seems like a UK car, with the single mirror for a RHD vehicle? Sadly the (partial) registration is unreadable.

On the other hand, the L451 Indian Red available to the Typ1 1960 only, is a closer match. If so, then the indicators would be added by the owner?

@dsl; Your Glass's would list any changes, if your market had indicators before the autumn of 1960 (like in the US), it would surely be mentioned here?

Indicators on wings listed from August 1960. If it's got a WVJ plate (see the Rapier picture), = Herefordshire July-Oct 1960.

Checking and re-checking again does give a start of 1961 model at October 1 1960, chassis 3 335 848 if you should ever find a chassis number. So yes, the indicators were added to the last batch of the 1960 model, leaving the subject vehicle a 1960 should then be correct.
