The bus appears briefly in the scene with the newspaper taxi - if you look at the end of the road, you can see it pass by.

I saw that the original VW bug from the cover of Abbey Road with the 28IF license sold for $5,000.00 in 1986! I bought my first car for $6,000.00 that year, and I'm kicking myself because I could have owned that VW and had $1000 in my pocket! Life can be so cruel!

The original Bus used in the film is still owned by Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando.The pics above are not the original Bus they are photos of my Bus that I just bought.The two Buses are almost identicle.Both had the same first owners Foxs of Hayes .The Film bus is with a layland 400 Engine in it ,mine has a Bedford 466 and was built in 1968.The seating material is different than the Original Bus but once completed my Bus will look just like the Bus in the film looked and NOT how it(the Film Bus) has been restored.The original Bus has the wrong stickers along both sides and the seats are now in blue as the original seats were cut up and sold in small squares by Beatle City. I have bought this Bus for a project to aid children with cancer.I will pick it up in 2 weeks on the 17th January 2014.

I saw the bus in Orlando once. I remember thinking it was smaller than I thought it should've been. It wasn't there anymore when I checked around 2011.
