Scarlet Pimpernel..

Ken Jones has sent us this picture of Scarlet Motors JYC 855 - 1947 Leyland PS1 Harrington coach.
The coach was out of action earlier during the year but is now on the road again and Ken took the opportunity to ride on it and take this photograph.

New to Scarlet Motors, Minehead, and extensively restored to their livery, this coach features the early Leyland post-war E 181 engine, and the distinctive rear ‘dorsal fin’ ventilation system that was a feature of many Harrington coaches of this era. 
The owner Roger Burdett is scheduled to take the vehicle to the Winchester Rally in January. 

More pictures of the coach are shown below taken at the 2008 Kirkby Stephen Rally
