Post What is this coach
Looking on ebay I found this, which details that is a s bedford chassis?

Given the age, the internet suggests y-series, but I know thing about the bedford coaches or even whos bodywork it is likely to be? Looks a little bit Paxton, but not very?

Likelyhood of getting spares? ... 6016.l4276

It`s a Bedford YMQS. S for a shortened chassis to 35 seats, done new, by Tricentrol Chassis Developments in Luton. It had as built a Bedford 500 (8 litre) engine. What it has now is anybody`s guess. The body is a Plaxton Paramount 1 (3200). Spares for the chassis and 500 engine are fairly easy to get, as there is a Bedford enthusiast club and some spares dealers who can supply them. Bedford spares were amongst the cheapest for commercial vehicles. We ran a large fleet of Bedfords in the 70`s and 80`s, which were reliable and cheap to get parts for. There are plenty in scrapyards as well now. The body might be a bit more difficult to get parts for, but Plaxtons will probably supply bits, but scrapyards are the best bet. The short Paramount 1 shares most of it`s body parts with the 45 and 53 seat Mk1 vehicles.
