Bedford Buses and Coaches
Bedford Buses and Coaches provides a detailed review of the entire range of purpose-built Public Service Vehicle (PSV) bus and coach chassis that carried the Bedford name from 1931 until production ceased in 1986. Bedfords were once a familiar sight on the roads not only of the United Kingdom, but throughout the world. They were produced in such volume that the advertising slogan ‘You see them everywhere’ was quite legitimately adopted by Vauxhall Motors, the manufacturer of Bedford vehicles.

Fully illustrated thoughout with hundreds of photographs, the majority in colour, the book includes:
The origins of Bedford, and its history from 1931 to 1986
Detailed descriptions of the Bedford petrol and diesel engines and other manufacturers’ engines used in Bedford bus and coach chassis
Detailed specifications and production histories are given for all the full-size passenger chassis including the WHB/WLB, WTB, OB/OWB, SB, VAS, VAL, VAM, Y-series and the Venturer
Descriptions of bodies and details of coachbuilders that built on Bedford chassis
A survey of Bedford goods chassis adapted for passenger carrying
Road tests and owners’ experiences
Advice on buying and restoring a Bedford bus and coach
