New to Halifax Corporation in 1963 after a short stint in Yorkshire, the bus moved to Harvey’s of Mousehole in 1967.Harveys were taken over by Grenville Motors in 1986 and continued in service with them until they were then taken over by Western National in 1988.
The bus was sold on for preservation in 1991 to Neval Green and passed on again and re-painted back in to Halifax colours. After many years of ownership, unfortunately the previous owner fell ill and the bus has suffered a little. It was rescued from Lincolnshire by Steve, Paul and Lee after putting the engine back together - Steve got it out of the shed and onto a low loader for the long journey back to Cornwall. She is currently awaiting restoration including some clutch repairs, brake repairs and a repaint back to her 'true colours' (as stated by her owner!).
