Where are you based?

The coal merchant bought the farm with the bus already in the barn, I understand the original owner was an Arthur James of Dean Farm, Haw Lane, Bledlow Ridge, High Wycombe, HP14 4JG. Trying to find relations of him at the minute.

I’ve written to the current owners of the house and asked if they have forwarding details of previous owners.

Will check census and voting lists.

Keep thinking!

Will this fit my 65 Kombi ?

Whereabouts are you ?
Sorry different grade of rust in a late bus, you're welcome to try it but not sure it'll fit, collection from Wolverhampton preferred.
