She gets her name from the number plate, she's a '67 RHD uk bus thats obviously got an interesting history, if any one recognises her, please let me know. I bought her recently, to get her mot'd & back on the road as she is, but to then build one of my reproduction Devon style interiors, hopefully in time for Vicky Farm, but with customers work taking priority, we'll have to wait & see. She certainly looks like she's been chained at some point, but the damage to the cab door surrounds & has had some interesting work done to make solid, I think probably done before repro panels were so easily available. All I know is repairs were done to get her through her mot, but then for some reason work stopped & she was parked in a garage for at least 12-15 years. When I got her she didn't run & had no brakes....... she now runs & I'm part way through sorting the brakes......

Something lies beneath the paint ????

Looks like a very nice, blue dralon rear seat, out of maybe a Ford Granada sitting up front........very '70's ??

A little bit of work needed here............ or I might just keep it, as they say every dent tells a story

As she's soooooo different from Mr Bo that I'm usually seen driving I might just keep the outside as it is but build a really nice interior to show the sort of thing I offer through Resto Haus & paint a slogan down the side such as " it's what's on the inside that counts " ?
