Bristol Lodekka, SRU 981 ex Hants and Dorset

This vehicle has been professionally restored to as new condition with all the timer frame work being replaced which benefitted from a complete panel strip down.  This meant we had access to renew all the wood framing so that she is 100% solid.  The bus has also benefitted from new panels all round including the beading, it really is a straight bus.  The bus is now ready for painting which is the last job to do, we can do it for you but this will be on top of the price.  Inside the bus has had a complete retrim and everything has been restored back to orginal condition, this is a well respected vehicle throughout the preservation world which has a wealth of history.  It has been well looked after over her years and has a 6LW Gardner engine which runs perfect, she is a easy running vehicle which is perfect for ongoing preservation or commercial operation. The bus has runs at around 38 MPH confortably, climes up and down the hills perfectly.  4 speed crash gear box, the bus drives lovely everything is very tight, just a great lodekka!

I will be personally sad to see her go but owning a high number of vehicles now and just need to be realistic with the collection and other Crosville vehicles which we have waiting to be restored which is why we are looking to part with SRU.  Its a genuine sale and not a easy one as its a special lodekka as she's a early example.

We are looking for this bus to go to a good genuine home and I am only selling her to make way for other vehicles which we own.  A decision has been made to part so that she can be enjoyed by a new owner to the extent she rightfully deserves.  You wont be disapointed with the bus, buy this LD and you wont have to worry about any restoration work for many many years to come, pure money earning potential and enjoyment!

There are too many items to list that have been resotored but from the photos you will see that shes a gem!  I have included a photo of her before the panel strip down which shows SRU in the correct livery once again. When you see the vehcile in the flesh it will be sure to offer the wow factor!

Any questions please email or phone me on 07525 761791.  I have left painting it as the new owner may prefer to arrnage this but all the hard work has been done, there is discussion for the new owner and a genuine deal to be agreed for both paries on this bus.

Please genuine buyers only.
