HISTORY This vehicle was originally supplied to Graceline Coaches of New Alresford, Hampshire, and in the late 1950s passed to Brown Motor Services of Forest Green, Surrey.  It was taken to Portugal in the early 1990s as a family tourer around Europe.  It was brought back home in 2001 and a total restoration began. The missing seats were replaced, and the rotten wooden framework at the rear was completely replaced.  It is now in the livery of Tanner's Services of Banbury, Oxfordshire.
