Services offered

'Lillie' is a gorgeous 1972 tin top bay window. Restored locally to an extremely high standard in VW pastel white with bespoke oak interior and pale cream upholstery she really is a fantastic example of a VW bay window bus. Lillie seats up to 6 people in 'L' shaped style seating with one seated in the front.

'Lilah', is a 1965 Beetle. Finished in VW 'bahama blue' with a high quality Bernard Newbury interior she is a multiple VW show winner and has feautured as a centre spread in Volksworld magazine. She seats 3 passengers or the front seat can be removed to accommodate brides with a fuller gown, seating 2 passengers.

'Lulu', the beautiful 1960 early split screen is painted in Dorset Dubhire's bespoke signature shade of powder blue and ivory. Her oak and cream interior and classic style make her extremely popular for weddings. She seats up to 6 people in conference style seating. A real head turner and affectionately known as 'the South's best loved splitty'! Lulu is believed to be the oldest splitscreen bus available to hire for weddings locally.

'Lucy' is the newest addition to the fleet. A 1974 baywindow deluxe bus, she is painted in the same popular (and top secret!) colour combination of powder blue and ivory as Lulu the splitscreen. With pale cream upholstery and a bespoke oak interior she seats up to 6 passengers comfortably in conference style seating with one seated in the front.
