Further to our recent post regarding the appearance of former Flying Banana Freight Rover Minibus D70TLV we can reveal that it has now been purchased by enthusiast Jamie Vendy. Jamie has added the vehicle to his growing fleet as part of the Eastern Counties Bus Preservation group.
The Carlyle bodied Freight Rover Sherpa was new to North Western with Flying Banana acquiring it from Brian Isaac of Morriston, Swansea in 1993. It was later converted into an open top as a 'Banana Buggy'
He has also asked if any blog readers has the Flying Banana Deck Chair logo in their collections anywhere please.
Now safely undercover it will live on alongside other Eastern based veterans. We will of course keep you updated on its progress.
Thanks to Jamie for the Photos and Info.
