I remember this vehicle very well . in 1975 it was very run down and I recall 4 of us being commandeered to push it along Placehouse lane and managing to gain enough speed for it to start in gear . in the closing week of Spring term 1976 , 4 5th year school leavers ( ie not staying on to take exams ) repainted it
