But it has no chrome over above the number plate, is it the same trim level?

According to the comments here /vehicle_98483-Vauxhall-Victor-F-1958.html about the chrome door glass trim rather than a bright drip-rail with painted glass frames this was used from 1957 to mid 1958, so definitely series 1.

I have not found a rear view of an early [F] Victor but other details do appear to confirm its a series 1. The rear boot panel looks also to have the shaped indentation around the number plate as series 1, for series 2 it was a simple straight crease above the number plate.

The chrome trim over the number plate was only a 'Vauxhall' nameplate and not a light housing, therefore the separate script (Vauxhall or Victor?) on the left makes me think this is probably was changed within the first year of series 1 production.

The chrome strip on the rear above the number plate was i think introduced in 58 as a sort of handle to lift up the boot lid, that was its purpose, on the 57 you had to use the key to lift the boot lid.

Chrome over number plate might have separated Standard and Super versions (so not a dating feature)???
