Leyland 100ft TL from Bristol GHW 415
Neville Berry is seeking current information concerning this classic Leyland Merryweather TL (GHW415) that served Bristol, I photographed it at some type of oldtimer rally near Reading several years ago. It's a standard normal control (or conventional) Leyland. For some reason it was parked in this rather strange position at the edge of a field. Does anyone know when it was delivered? Bristol also ran a double seat open Leyland engine plus a fully enclosed Leyland engine with four door limousine type body and possibly others,but these are the only ones I photographed many moons ago.
