This coach was originally supplied new to Graceline Coaches of New Alresford, Hampshire and in the late 1950's passed to Brown Motor Services of Forest Green, Surrey.

It was taken to Portugal in the early 1990's as a family tourer around Europe. It was returned to Britain in 2001 and total restoration began, with the missing seats replaced and rotted woodwork frame at the rear replaced. It is now in the livery of Tanner's Services of Banbury, Oxfordshire
