Spooky was built in July 1972 (makes him exempt road tax!!). A word about road tax exemption. Any vehicle BUILT before 1st January 1973 is exempt road tax.
He is a bit of a hybrid as he was built in the middle of the changes from the 1971 model to the 1973 model and has interesting features:
He was originally a Devon Devonette conversion but the interior was in a very sad state so unfortunately it had to be binned. I do still have the original owners manual for the bus and the conversion which is unusual, in fact the bus was in a very original state when we bought him but the demon rust had taken it's toll.
