Description 1967 BEDFORD VAL-14 SIX WHEEL COACH : ITALIAN JOB - BEATLES MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

VERY RARE 1967 BEDFORD VAL-14 PLAXTON BODIED 6 WHEELER - 'CHINESE 6'Well where do i begin ? This old beastie has laid undisturbed for years and is in need of total restoration. 
My intention was to create an Italian Job or Beatles Magical Mystery Tour replica but as i already have one 6 wheeler to do i would rather someone with the time/money/skills required can get her back on the road.
With new batteries she has been run but obviously some of the tyres are perished and goodness knows what the brakes are like. It has the original Leyland 4000cc engine and is listed as a Historic vehicle in the taxation class, V5 present from when it was registered in 1982 on a Y reg.
You will need to have her collected on a low loader with a winch or large scale lorry recovery vehicle as she is over 33 feet long.
She has a rather unusual history in that it was the only 6 wheeler to be bought by London Transport and used on the 'XRM' project where for the majority of its life it was parked in their Chiswick works whilst they evaluated the use of possibly developing a twin steer London Bus. This never materialised and so was the only twin steer VAL ever owned by London transport. 
Originally supplied new to Sampson's of Hoddesdon, she has covered a very low 87000 miles from new and there are pictures of this actual coach in some books for reference.
I have gone through all the bits and pieces with her and they include the 2 piece rear glass screens, spare glass, all the aluminium 'ribbed' trim seems to be there as well, it looks like most of the aluminium nearside panels that have been removed are also there along with spare roof vents and bumper trims plus various other bits and pieces. 
Someone has been in touch who has a boot lid and side glass for sale if needed. 
Someone in the past has started to strip the interior so not all the seats etc are with her hence it would look so cool with a conversion into the Italian Job style and before you ask,yes i am aware that it was originally a 'Harrington Legionnaire' bodied version in the film but there is only one of those left !
For those wishing to make an italian job style conversion there is room for 3 old minis from the back of the drivers seat to the rear panels !
Viewing strongly recommended and i would require a £500 deposit at the end of the auction and cash on collection within 7 days from East Sussex.
Please ensure you have got transport costs and their availability to collect her within a week of the auction ending.
