Plaxtons on AEC,Bedford,Daimler,Ford,Leyland,Volvo or any other chassis?
I would prefer to name it with a chassis make, but in an other way Plaxtons can be considered as a make with actual productions

Like some VanHool busses, Winnebago campers, etc. They are listed with the name of the body maker rather than the chassis.

The name is Plaxton without 's' -- even though they usually turn up in larger numbers ;)
The model is a Panorama.

I could not find that Plaxton used the code 'R-Series', but a number of chassis makers do (Dennis, Ford, Scania -- all on modern chassis). Sixcyl, could you check your information and let us know? For the moment I will place 'R-Series' into the chassis field -- feel free to change it back if I am wrong.

Nearest the camera is a Ford R-series of Excelsior Motorways with Plaxton Panorama Elite body. Excelsior had a lot of these at one time.
Next, a Mercedes 0302 integral.
Next, a Bedford VAL70 (you can just see the wheelarch for the second axle at the front) with Duple Viceroy body.
The fourth might another VAL70/Duple Viceroy.

Plaxton of Scarborough have always been coachbuilders, not chassis builders, although a small number of double deck coaches were built and badged as Plaxton.

it seems SteveA answered for me ;) ...
Just a question I'm wondering, why FORD letters are missing on the upper part of the grill?... specially no bagdged for Excelsior Motor ways?

I believe it's a Ford R226 or R192 - there are a number of reasons why you don't see badges on the front grille - sometimes the operators ask for them to be left off, sometimes they fall off, sometimes they get stolen. In rare cases you just have to know: a lot of early Leyland Atlanteans built for Glasgow in Scotland had Albion badges on the front - Albion being a Scottish manufacturer taken over by Leyland......
