Hi Lloyd – spotted this Gem on ebay -I’d love to own and restore it, but far to many other projects and 9 month old baby. I don’t think I could give it the time it needs.
It claims true “convoy” pedigree. This is when the young of UK abandoned their ordinary lives for life on the road going from music festivals to raves in a trail of hedonistic freedom !
Unfortunately the capitalist Thatcher government didn’t like free radicals. Castle Moreton Rave drew tens if not hundreds of thousands and the authorities feared loss of control.
The Convoy was smashed by the iron fist of the iron lady. The Battle of the Beanfield at stonehenge saw the police smash up buses and trucks, travellers and horses. These were peoples homes and lives violently destroyed. Not to mention beautiful rare vintage buses !
Anyway – this one survived
Tis a mighty nice truck.
Hope all is well.
