This is Southern Vectis 679 (FDL679V) a 1979 Bristol VR - basically like 7681. She is currently with Johnsons of Hodthorpe (as are quite a few other ex Southern Vectis VR's). Wouldn't it be nice to see her restored in this bright allover advert she wore for Blackgang Chine back in the 90's? Would make a change from leaf green and would certainly stand out in any line up! I often wonder what I would've done had I have owned 7682 instead. Like 679 she spent many years in various advert liveries (although not as bright as this one maybe!) Would I had been tempted to restore her in a advert for a long defunct local company?
