This East Yorkshire colour scheme introduces a special page for all your requirements for assistance, information, or anything else that our readers may be able to provide. Buy, sell, ask, offer, request - anything you like in connection with our Classic Buses theme.

Email your ad to me here. It's all free. Adverts normally stay up for about 3-4 months, unless the advertiser asks to remove it sooner.

In order to avoid folk getting spam from having their email addresses published on this page, I add a space after the '@' symbol. So john@smith.com becomes john@ smith.com. You will have to remove the space yourself before emailing the advertiser. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it will hopefully save folk getting their addresses picked up by nasty robots, and their mailboxes filled with adverts for strange things.....


*************  !!!!!! BEWARE !!!!!! *************

CAUTION !

1. Beware of scam emails offering to send you a cheque for more than the amount you asked for. The buyer then asks for a refund of the excess, and you subsequently discover that the original cheque has bounced.

2. History has proved that ALL inquiries from Nigeria regarding items advertised on this webpage are scams! Ignore them all.

3. Be wary of bad English, second names that look like first names, and "gmail.com" email addresses.

4. Finally, do not reveal your bank account details over the Internet to people you do not know.

THERE ARE LOTS OF IDIOT SCAMMERS AROUND. Here's the latest list. Please let me know if you get any more.
LOOK OUT - IT'S A (largely Nigerian) JUNGLE OUT THERE ! (By the way, the fact that I'm publishing their email addresses means that they will be picked up by the nasty mining robots and sent lots of spam. Perhaps they'll spam each other!)

Southampton Regent V for sale

Southampton AEC Regent V 353 (373 FCR) is now for sale and available after 4th November 2018. 353 is a well-known bus having been a regular on the preservation scene around Southampton as part of the Classic Bus Hire fleet since 2016 operating on weddings and proms.

This is probably the best AEC Regent V in operation today and you will not be disappointed by condition and immediate usability. We need this bus to go anywhere at any time and it does just that. It is reliable, in great condition and performs very well. It was class 6 MOT'd recently (passed with no advisories) and will have around 6 months left when released in November. The analogue tacho is due in September and we will do this. The bus is subject to six-weekly inspections and this year has had new batteries fitted, been serviced, new inner tubes, new clutch slave cylinders, and had the bellows gland replaced.

The bus is stored undercover, however for the remainder of this year she will be outside due to location and times of bookings. She returns around 13-15 mpg (AEC AV590 engine), is LEZ exempt and we suspect it will be ULEZ exempt, is MOT exempt (but since we operate her commercially we need a Class 6 MOT). It could be transferred to Historic status (free of road tax) if required.

The chassis is in good condition, as is the body, tyres and interior. The lower saloon seats could do with a revamp but are still perfectly usable. Overall this is a great bus for someone wishing to enter the wedding market or to have as a great preservation bus. For more pictures Google "373 FCR" or search www.classicbushire.co.uk.

The bus is owned by me and loaned to Classic Bus Hire so this is a private sale, meaning no VAT. We are open to offers, sold as seen. It is advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to close the sale at any time. Buyer to collect the bus, from Newbury if ready on 4th November 2018. Contact Gary Clark at info@ classicbushire.co.uk (remove the space after "@") (8/18)
