The Car

The Harrington Legionnaire coach, only 59 where built and you will know it from that famous film with Mr Michael Cain!

The Harrington Legionnaire was an 11 metres (36 ft) passenger coach body built by Thomas Harrington Ltd  in Hove, Sussex between 1963 and 1965. It was built on three-axle Bedford VAL, two-axle Ford Thames 676E and two specials on Guy Victory trambus chassis.

The Harrington Legionnaire was a square-rigged body with straight waistrail and five deep windows per side. It also differed from the Harrington Cavalier and Harrington Grenadier by having plated window surrounds, there was a large brightwork grille and twin headlights, a Harrington Grenadier-style front windscreen was used with a similar sized one at the rear. Above the windscreen was a destination box of illuminated nameboard and above that a prominent peak.

The Legionnaire gained high recognition through the 1969 film 'The Italian Job'. The coach used was registered 'ALR 453B' and was delivered new to Battens of London in 1964. So, o you have what it takes to be 'Big Willy'? Are you going to make a better job than him?

As a bus driver myself and a big fan of The Italian Job I was bought the full Italian Job Experience including the Mini Cooper S,the E Type Jaguar and of course the famous Harrington Bus the actual one from the film. Getting to grips with this vehicle was a dream come true,but not only do you get to drive the bus you also get a passenger ride in the Mini up & into the back of the bus whilst it’s moving just like in the film. A great day out.
