Spotted in a Leeds car park yesterday.

I'm interested to know if the chimney is taken down for travelling.

Won't be a longcube... it will have been a 17 seater bus.

I know its picky, but the longcube name was only used for vans, and they are sodding rare. Busses not so much

I've learnt something there, not just about the name, but also that a factory 17-seat bus existed in its own right at all! I thought that all busses were modified LongCubes, as all those I have seen had the LongCube badge on the back. Sadly I didn't see the rear so don't know how this particular bus was badged.

And I've just found blurb about it, including pics, in my Transit 1999 Edition 1 brochure, which I clearly hadn't taken any notice of.

I used to look after 3 factory 17 seat busses

S***COU
W***WGO
W***WGP

Unfortunately I can't remember the numbers :( WGO/WGP were originally sold in to the Irish market so didn't have immobilisers, one was yellow, one was blue. COU was UK spec and white
