A unique mobile cinema, based on a Bedford SB3 chassis, has gone on sale for £120,000
A fully-restored 1967 Bedford Mobile cinema has gone up for sale on eBay. The rare vehicle is one of seven produced for the UK Ministry of technology department in the late sixties, and is thought to be the only survivor of the fleet. It is listed on the auction website for £120,000.
The Bedford also comes complete with the original trailer it was built to tow, which is thought to be the last of its kind.
Built on a Bedford SB3 chassis, the mobile cinema has a Plaxton Panorama cab complete with a custom swing passenger door. Within this 1960s vision of the future lies a full HD and 7.1 Dolby surround sound system, complete with sound proofing and climate control for the benefit of audiences.
Recently the cinema has appeared on television programmes such as The Reel History Britain and the second series of George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces. Both the cinema and the trailer also come complete with collection of spares.
