HISTORY This 1948 Strachan-bodied AEC Regal III was found in derelict condition on a farm near Llandudno.  It has been fully restored by Quantock Motor Services in Somerset.  Newly restored in April 2006, it is powered by the 7.7 litre engine coupled to a crash box.  Formerly with Crossville Motor Services, operating in Cheshire and North Wales, the vehicle was part of the heritage fleet of Quantock Motor Services, and licensed for private hire and tours.  However, it may have recently been sold on.
