Restoration continues on the 1947 Weymann bodied Sunbeam

Restoration of the top deck is now complete apart from the light bulbs and some reglazing

Charlie Buttle, who was a driver at Silverhill when this vehicle was delivered new in 1947 admires the restoration. Charlie was, for many years, Happy Harold's regular driver after Maidstone & District had fitted its Commer TS3 engine.
