This looks very much like a Guy Arab powered by a Gardner 6LX engine, and carries Northern Counties bodywork. Lovely red Lancashire United livery.
This isn't an old picture. It was obviously taken recently and goes against the idea of just old photo's being uploaded.
Dave, the point of the photo is the old LUT Bus, which dates back to the 50s. As Roy clearly states, parked up in a garage in Ince.
It's an old bus, and that's the point of the photo.
Passed my test on one of these in 1980 aged 20 (rules had just changed and I was first in Greater Manchester to pass under age 21)
this bus has bodywork by M C W of birmingham no 40 of this batch was damaged at Burtons factory and rebuilt with a Northern counties front entrance body the only Guy arab iv in fleet with front doors all other front entrance buses where arab v models
The 50 route went from Bolton to Warrington via Atherton, Leigh and Newton. Most LUT Gay Arab buses were bodied in Wigan by Northern Counties. This 1961 batch 40-49 531-540RTB was bodied by Metro Cammell, and only 43 survives in preservation today.
Is this not N.C.M.E BODIED ?
