The owner recently started a 'what's my bus worth' thread on Facebook and it didn't go too well. It was deleted quite quickly.

That's what I just thought, bay-a-like.Front bumper to front panel radius,and the back wheel looks to far back in the "arches " (wtf are they)
I could continue,

What Scotty said, guy posted it and got told what was wrong or not right about the bus....

Owner had a big paddy over what they think is a 100% correct bus.

But remember it's a rare RHD.

It's such a shame that someone with cash and no clue on buses but wants one will think they have a lovely genuine bus!!

Just from the pics you see there is serious bondo especially the front clip, and a lot of restro needed, the Ebay advert is very optimistic on what needs doing. I would hate to see the condition of this after a blasting. I think it is a Split rather then a bay but it has definitely been heavy fettled with.
Good news if it fetches within £10K of the asking price for the rest of us owners!

It's just a lash up job. I don't think it's a bay window hack job. Just a badly lashed up bus. They all used to be like that once upon a time. The front valance says it all really.

I've just had a look and zoomed in on all the pics. Doesn't look too good does it. The cargo door cill looks bent.
Obviously needs a full resto. I bet Jerry was an easier restoration than this one is likely to be. I'd say this is worth no more than 6k and I'm being generous
