Technical specifications, photos and description:
Well here it is. the Tartan Bus. Having done all the refurbishments and got it looking stunning. we realise that we are probably too busy to market it properly so have decided to offer it for sale.
The Tartan Bus is a 1962 AEC Routemaster with a more modern Scania engine fitted to it at its last full overhall before leaving service in London where it worked for 42 years. It is in fantastic condition mechanically and bodily and has benefitted from a full interior refit and retrim for exhibition/ corporate work it has been fully wood lined in the passenger compartment with new seating and flooring. It is fitted out with a media system including multiple screens (50") and sound.
The Tartan Bus runs like a sweetie and was driven over 400 miles recently without issue (albeit slowly!!) It has just had a full mechanical check over by a Routemaster mechanic and been given a full service at the same time.
The Tartan wrap is very striking yet somehow keeps the whole red bus theme going and looks traditional. We have manufactured an alloy shutter for locking the bus up as well as adding panels to allow for branding messages.
Comes complete with domain names www. tartanbus. com and www. tartanbus. co. uk
