Matador 750P in print

For those of you who admire Matadors and all things AEC as much as I do (no I didn't mean Spaniards chasing bulls) there's a very fine picture of 750P in Ian Allan's latest landscape format colour album. Check out page 13 of London Buses in colour 1965-1980. There's a lovely colour picture by Maurice Bateman of RT921 being rescued at Shepherd's Bush. Are you out there Maurice? Are there any more like this?

Matadors and Spaniards
Thu 10/01/08, 18:49
Having found this post I cannot resist asking whether anyone has a picture of an AEC Matador at the Spaniards (the pub on Hampstead Heath that is!) - or indeed any service vehicle there. I have photographed many buses at the Spaniards but have never seen a service vehicle there. The nearest I can claim is the LT Museum's T219 (which was staff ambulance 428W in the Second World War) on the occasion of the Central RF 40th anniversary rally at Finsbury Park and runs over route 210. I also know that preserved RT1 (1037J) re-enacted its 1939 press run to the Spaniards, but I was not present.
