1st issue has a smooth inner roof but the 2nd issue has the rivets on the inner roof to hold the windows in. But these two do not have windows, the 2nd issue is often over looked as a variation. Sorry about that the photos came out back to front.

Hi George I wonder why they didn't make the van type I used to rent one out in the 60s. A very funny van as you sat by the engine, very hot van to drive in the summer Pete.
