Post by 49barndoor » Thu Mar 05, 2015 8:41 pm

Baby due in a few months so this really needs to go now, Highest bidder takes it v v v v

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132283491893? ... 1555.l2649

Agreed Insurance value of £75,000
Initial sale price was £68,000
Then £60,000
Now the giveaway price of £55,000 will end the auction or take a punt on Ebay

Fires straight up,
Engine runs like a Swiss watch,
Drives nice,
Stops good and straight,
Drive it anywhere,
Looks the business
Everything works as it should !!!

Links to some videos which are abit old now and the bus has improved even more since then v v v v v

Cheers Dai your right its a real piece of history and a fantastic bus but its a little wasted on me as I really need something I can hot rod and fly about scaring the local boy racers. This bus is far too nice for that in my opinion and I have my eye on something I could happily get radical with :wink:

It was a full bodied barnfind when I bought it a couple of years back, I kept everything off it, The original saddles are like new and it was still fitted with its original extending rear luggage carrier and spare wheel. All the panels etc went in the attic as I might restore it one day but the idea was to have it look like a survivor skelly. Couple of hoops to jump through with the DVLA as it had been off the road since the early 70s, Change the gear box fluid, rims/tyres and on the road it went with it being a 58 :wink:
