Bristols Available for Purchase

April 2018
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 jo.alen@hotmail.com. It would be great to find a good home for this rare find.
March 2018
London Bus Company (Roger Wright) have had open-top VR MDM284P in store indoors for several years and would now like to see it sold on. It is in reasonable condition and is fitted with a wheelchair lift, so could even be considered for a return to service. Offers are invited - please contact mike@thelondonbuscompany.co.uk for further details or to make an offer.
February 2018

Robert Nogues has decided to offer his RELL6G/Alexander (ex-Citybus 2446) WOI2446 for sale. It is currently roadworthy with a valid MOT and comes with a quantity of spares. Robert is asking 2500 and if you are genuinely interested please drop him a line at ulsterbus@yahoo.co.uk
September 2017
Mike Pannell is rationalising his fleet of Lodekkas and so is making open-top FLF6G 409PTA available in Wyoming, U.S.A. It is currently a non-runner but could be repaired. He also has available the front end from 136HUO which is in an unknown condition but could possibly be used to repair the open-topper. Enquiries to Mike at michael.pannell@btinternet.com.
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 wolfram.niedermayer@feel-events.at
October 2016
Two LHs currently in the care of Heritage Malta are currently being offered for sale by tender alongside various other vehicles. The first is ECW-bodied GLJ485N and the other is Plaxton-bodied RDE298S (new to Silcox of Pembroke Dock). Details of how to tender can be found here.
August 2016
AAX21B in 2016
Former Red & White FS6G AAX21B is currently for sale in Moscow. Any brave souls out there looking to take on a Lodekka should contact Leonid Kozlov at fobos5@hotmail.com for further details but I don't advise sending money abroad until you know what you're getting!
June 2016
Owing to the impending loss of storage very rare dual-door RESL6G CCG296K which was new to Aldershot & District is being offered for sale by Mike Grant. It has been stood outside for many years and is still in the same condition as when it was used by the London Borough of Redbridge as a mobile day centre. It must be sold, or it will have to go for scrap so please make Mike an offer on 01708 509058 or email dogsrus1957@yahoo.co.uk.
October 2015
Former Ulsterbus RELL6G/Alexander (Belfast) WOI2440 is for sale at 3,500.

It is based in the Wells area and enquiries should be made to 07496 366660.
March 2015
XFB836Y in 2015
Cavendish Liner currently have a rare very late-model Duple-bodied LHS coach XFB836Y for sale. Unfortunately it requires a replacement engine, but is otherwise complete and would make an interesting addition to the ranks of preserved vehicles. Allocations manager Ben Fountain is handling the sale and can be contacted at bfountain@cavendishliner.com
February 2015
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. Would need a heavy clean and thorough tidy up. Complete with seats it will need mechanical attention to get it rolling again. The current owner has no means of moving it or working on it and would like to see it go on to a good home in preservation - contact paul@onestopbikebits.co.uk 
January 2013

Robbie Pict is reluctantly selling his LHL/Plaxton coach, converted for use as accommodation. It was recently featured in the BBC Alba documentary "The Bridge Rising" when it acted as the campaign bus for the Skye toll protestors. At present out of MOT Robbie would accept in the region of 2500 or 2995 with an MOT. It is mechanically sound with a ramp fitted to the rear. Suitable for stock cars, quad bikes, horses, etc. For further details please contact robbiethepict1@btinternet.com

November 2012

November 2012

Former City of Oxford Series 2 VR GUD751N has been used for many years as a playbus, first around London and then more recently in Wales, but it is now surplus to requirements and is a rare opportunity to acquire a roadworthy early VR. 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. It can be driven away on a car licence (under the 30 year rule) and the owners are open to offers. If you are interested please contact David Griffiths for more details on 01554 745150 or at david.griffiths@actionforchildren.org.uk

August 2012

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 gotschalk@gmail.dk
