Well Maggies battle bus is back on here..But this time she has a V5 from DVLA ,The front windows are see through and its been on a weigh bridge and guess what ,It's 17.5 ton NOT 38 ton.

Would really suit a camper enthusiast who plans to live through a nuclear attack fill it with cans of beans and bottled water and hey presto KIM WANG PONG do your best. A sealed filtered environment.The possibilities are endless.Probably good for serious Doggers too.

It was recently sold in a provincial auction house for £17 000  you may well have seen it on TV or in the big papers.That sale fell through Foreign buyer.So here she is .It's worth a google under Maggies battle bus.lots of interesting stories.

seems it was a special order constructer to keep maggie and her cabinet safe after the Brighton bombings by Glover and Webb at huge expense using foden and Rolls royce parts. With its special body armour,bullet proof glass and 2 foot thick anti blast proof floor Weighed in at about double what you would expect

Last time it was on here it was viewed by 38,000 people and i believe what put many of was the possibility of it weighing 38 ton and the huge fuel consumption that it could produce.I can now confirm when Jonathan the auctioneer came to collect it to drive it to his auction house we called in at a weighbridge and the ticket was only 17.5 tons. With it's 12 litre rolls engine it pulls and drives very well easily achieving over 70MPH.alledgedly.

So whether your interested in it's historical importance. (Maggies handbag recently sold in auction for £22,000 ).Or whether you have a use for an armoured bus with its own sealed anti Nuclear,biological,chemical environment powered by a seperate auxillery engine it could be a bargain.Would cost millions to produce these days and with only 17,000 miles on the clock  still has lots of life in her still.

If your a foreign buyer ,it may very well be possible to export as it's defensive not offensive. But best you contact us first before you bid. Make a very nice mobile Nuclear bunker.NORTH KOREA not a chance.

Your welcome to give me a call Nick on 07860 455636 The bus is currently at Tanksalot near silverstone she drives very well but you will need trade plates For a map go to my Tank driving websit then press contact (great map) dont trust your sat nav it will take you to a recycling center a mile away.

Happy bidding

PS a million thanks from all those people that emailed information ,some of the stories were amazing and all the advice and historical records that got me closer to finally getting its V5.
