John Stringer's recent picture of Barton's preserved char-a-banc reminded me that it used to be transported to and from rallies on this custom made transporter. The Ian Allan ABC of June 1960 shows this to have been converted from one of Barton's famous BTS/1 rebuilds of pre-war Leylands, this one being from 1952 with a Barton C39F body. Although carrying fleet number 49 here it was originally 668 NNN968 presumably having been renumbered in to the haulage fleet number series.
This picture was taken at the 1972 Grand Transport Extravaganza at Crich, a memorable first time visit for me going home after the three days covered in white dust!!
