Details: Now this is the sort of thing that most people probably think of a service vehicle! The first of 8 scans from Malcolm Conway's collection, this is Clydeside Scottish JW1 at Johnstone Garage on the 30th of June 1990. Although of half-cab configuration, the vehicle was never a bus. As the name on the bonnet suggests, it is an AEC Matador. The original registration is not known, although the Q/RDS series was used on several former buses in Clydeside's service fleet. Note that although the fleetname is Clydeside Scottish, the legal lettering reads Western Scottish. Clydeside was created from part of Western Scottish in 1985. The two merged in 1989, then split again in 1991! Note also the door to Australia in the background!

Phillip WaltonWestern SMT had two or three half cab Matadors. All were obtained from Military surplus stocks. One had its AEC engine replaced with a Gardner 6LXB resulting in a pronounced 'snout'. The last survivor was only scrapped a few years ago. Wed 07/04/2010, 18:20
