    Another gray (grey) wheels model. These are the gray plastic fine thread wheels which were used from 1959-1962. This model was released in 1960 but had the Players Please cigarette stickers instead of the BP visco-static stickers. It was sold through 1964 but had black wheels in 1963-1964 so that narrows this one down to 1961-1962.
    This is the iconic AEC Routemaster Bus also known as a London Buss as seen on music videos. Usually the ones that have an open top though. This is an improved version of the second MB-5 being the third of a series of four of the Routemaster London Buses. The fourth as an interior for the driver and passengers. This one is hollow inside as were most of the models from this era but slightly larger than its predecessors. Perhaps I will pick up the 2 previous versions for a side by side by side by side comparison. Plus another version of double decker bus for a fifth side..

      Really super red double decker bus fort, and like that side ad for BP gas it's very apropos for a British bus!

      Double decker buses are definitely symbolically British. London is the first thing I think of when I see one. I remember this Matchbox as well, it's a classic IMO. Another nice example you have here. There was a guy in town who had an open top version in the nineties. I saw him drive it when a high school had a homecoming parade, all the cheerleaders were doing there cheers on top floor. He brought it to the detail shop of the car wash associated with the car dealerships I was doing maintenance for. I got to tour it and check it out, it was pretty cool. I never got to ride on it actually moving. I can see why they're popular tourist rides.

      Thank you very much Newfld. Yes BP very appropriate.

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. You always leave such nice replies. I see them whenever I have to venture into the Hollywood area. The open top version that is.

      Thank you very much Scott.

      Thank you very much Purvis. I shall continue to continue.
