...and I believe the earlier Plaxton Supreme (up to III I think) and possibly the Panorama.

Not 100% on that, Plakkys aren't my speciality.

Known in this neck of the woods as a Bathgate bin lorry.  

 

I have a (loose) connection with a preserved example, it's awful, not even shite, just shit. Horrific driving position, dreadful brakes and an automatic.  Not BLs finest hour.

Not the idiot Fairchild's 'box of fags'?

Looking at the steering wheel and binnacle - I say AEC Reliance. Body? Not sure but I'll hazard a guess at Harrington.

Tail lights - Hella units as fitted to Plaxton Panorama Elite up to 1973. The ones that get me are the Plaxton Daimler Roadliners. The chrome surround around the tail lights incorporated vents to get rid of the heat from the rear mounted Cummins V6.

Yeah, pretty sure that's a Reliance. ...looking at the dash, getting along at a fair old lick too!

Christ, a Beadle bodied one! Should have guessed East Kent because of the red steering wheel.
That means it could be KFN250, 251 or 252?

(Edit. Scrap that, I've looked up and they had more than 3 Beadle bodied AECs)
