More information on this Leyland:
Memory doesn't tell me quite what this coach is/was. I think it was a Leyland but I could easily be wrong on this. It shared barn space with my Dodge lorry and belonged to someone who had a number of preserved coaches. This one needed substantial restoration when photographed in 1996. Lloyd got in touch to identify this vehicle: Crosville Motor Services No.168 (later K10) a Leyland TS4 / Leyland B32F (rebodied ECW DP28R 1939) of 1932. FM 6858. Used in late 1950s as cricket changing and tea room in field near Stratford-on-Avon. Derelict 1966. Now in Preservation.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Leyland above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Coach would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Leyland Coach, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Coach, and similar old Leylands, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
