anyone seen this bus

FGN607C

This was my dad's Dormobile back in the sixties - looking at DVLA records it still exists - anyone know of its whereabouts or point to a more appropriate forum for searching?

cheers

Seen it, its my bus! In fact I think I bought it off your Dad 25ish years ago! It looks a little different now, don't we all after 25 years, but still going strong; we've just got back from a trip to Hanover and Wolfsburg.

This was on the trip...

I'd love to know more about her early history and any photos if you have them? I can fill you in on what has happened to her in the last 25 years!

Just to let you all know we did meet up and Patrick was able to tell me a good few stories from my buses early years, which was pretty cool. I particularly liked the one about it being craned onto a Russian freighter to go to Helsinki...

It turns out my bus has had quite an interesting early life with plenty of trips to the continent, and still she goes back!

All I have to find out now is what happened between 1975 and 1990. Anyone?...
