I photographed this former Bury Corporation AEC Regent in September 1995 in Heaton Park, Manchester, at the Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally organised by the Greater Manchester Transport Society.
The programme of the event had this to say about this vehicle:
AEC Regent III 9613A Weymann H56R, 1952 BEN 177
Entered by D.R.Stubbings, Rossendale
The majority of Bury's buses were Lancashire built Leylands. Two AEC chassis were bought in 1950
and placed in store until Weymann bodies were fitted. These two AEC buses were unpopular with
Bury's bus drivers. being 'odd-men out' in the fleet.
