AEC Regent V

This bus was one of the entrants in the Trans Lancs Historic Vehicle Rally in Heaton Park, Manchester in September 1998.
It's a 1957 AEC Regent V with MCW Orion body which had then only recently been the subject of a major overhaul by the Merseyside Transport Trust. The vehicle had been delivered new to Liverpool Corporation Transport in September 1957, passed to the Merseyside Passenger Transport Executive in December 1969 and was finally withdrawn from service in July 1976. John, Paul, George and Ringo must have travelled on this in its early years of service.
