Full Description
Meet our 1971 Volkswagen Bus we affectionately call “Rory”, chauffeur driven by Adrian, owner and lover of all things mechanical. Rory, also doubles up as a unique photo booth for your entertainment - Covering Devon, Cornwall, Somerset & Dorset.... and occasionally Nottinghamshire (as I cant leave me roots!) Rory started life as an East German fire crew bus before working his way over to Poland at some point in the late 80s/90s. After years of working on various old VW’s we imported ...Rory in 2008, with no interior and a more than slightly suspect engine, we set to work getting him up and running for a European road trip the following summer. The trip was a success (apart from a few little issues) and we enjoyed many a trip out in him over the following years, including using him for our own wedding in 2010. By 2012 he was starting to show his age after many days down on the beach so we took him off the road. As with most of these stories, what we thought would be a few small jobs... turned into a full restoration and with the exception of the paintwork and seat trimming all of the work has been carried out by Adrian your chauffeur and booth host! Rory is also now sporting a Subaru engine for a little added reliability and comfort. We thought he was too special to keep to ourselves. And now joining our franchise is.... “The Duke”.. Ducati Split Screen - this 1958 ex Swiss army bus has been given a new persona... he arrived in the UK in 2000 Originally advertised for sale by Luke Theocari of Terry’s beetle services then reportedly The Duke was going to be a replacement for Jamie Oliver’s samba but was then bought by Pete and Liz Beaumont who did a whole refit from his original grey exterior and eventually sent him off to be taken back to bare metal in 2010 and given a full respray in Ducati anniversary red inside and out! They then sent The Duke off to Simon Lloyd of Simon Lloyd signs, Cheltenham, to hand paint Ducati Meccanica livery to the cab doors for the finish
