Transformed Luxury Bedford Bus Motor-home to sell for £120,000 at auction

A vintage 1950 Bedford OB bus that has been completely transformed into a stunning luxury motor home, complete with kitchen and shower, is up for auction this week on online auction house, Catawiki where it’s set to sell for a jaw-dropping £120,000.

The one of a kind R/V converted bus was purchased two years ago as a wreck by professional coach builder and engineer Walter Bell, who in 3,500 working hours, single-handedly transformed it into the world's only 1950 Bedford bus luxury home on wheels. The bus, which from the outside wouldn't look out of place on a busy road in the 50s, has been decked out inside with a handcrafted American walnut kitchen, shower, Apple Mac screens, and a BOSE sound system.

The truly bespoke bus with its modern 6.5 tonnes Iveco diesel engine, which can reach speeds at over 90mph, is perfect for a summer road trip in style.
