 Bristol Omnibus Memorabilia


Bristols Available for Purchase

Zoe Wilson has lived in former Southern Vectis flat-front VR SDL636J for many years, parked just off the M4 in Wiltshire.

Former Thames Valley FLF6G FJB739C is currently being advertised by Nostalgia Travel in Oxfordshire for sale. It has been used for private hire for many years and so should be in good serviceable condition, although I have no inside knowledge of this. Contact details are on their website here

Martin Pinnington is reluctantly offering former West Yorkshire/Silver Star RELL6G JWU335J due to poor health. Untouched since being towed to its current location, Martin has some parts stored towards its  restoration and it is reasonably complete. He is much more interested in any buyer's commitment to restore the vehicle than getting top money for it so if you are interested in taking it on please drop him a line at

Rare opportunity to acquire a Bristol Omnibus country RELL, 1332 (OAE954M) from the Stroud RE Group. All in running order, very loud exhaust note, they are only selling because they have decided that they already have enough on their plate with other buses. 4750 secures. Contact Mike at

1117PW in Belgium
Jo Alen has for sale former Eastern Counties FS5G LFS17 (1117PW). It is located near Brussels in Belgium and has been owned by the Alen family since being exported in 1978. It was used for many years at trade shows, carnivals, markets and suchlike but has been laid up and dry stored for the past 20 of so years. All seats have been removed, but this was done carefully and they are securely stored with the bus along with all the interior chrome work. A few windows are broken but it is otherwise intact and the engine runs. If you are interested in a conversation with Jo with a serious view to purchase please contact him initially at It would be great to find a good home for this rare find.

March 2017
As reported recently on this website, Wolfram acquired former Western National LD6G 1933 (UOD487) last year for spare parts to repair his own accident-damaged TUO503. This work is now complete but he has no need for the remains of 1933 nor a place to store it, so he is offering the bus free of charge to anyone who can make use of it. The down side is that the bus is in Austria and you will of course need to have it towed away, but if you are interested please contact Wolfram either through Facebook or at

Rare ex-West Midlands P.T.E. MCW-bodied VR GOG653N is currently available for offers around 2000. It was restored many years ago but has not moved since 2007.

The bus has a built-in Honda generator, battery charger, Webasto heater and toilet. It is taxed to the end of July 2013 and has an MOT that runs to the end of January 2013.

This is almost certainly the last chance to buy Northern Counties-bodied former Cleveland Transit RDC108R which was converted for use as a playbus many years ago and which is now resident in Denmark. The owner is making it as simple as possible to acquire it by offering to deliver it to the Esjberg end of the Harwich ferry (it drives with no problems apparently - it was driven to Denmark as recently as 2010). It has four new retreads at the rear and two brand new (in 2010) tyres on the front. He is asking for 2400 cash on collection and can be contacted at
