    Description
    This Bedford OB dates from 1950 and was originally operated by the Crosville Motor Services based in Chester. It has a Duple Vista 29-seat body and is a fine example of the typical British luxury coach of the 1950s. Although very popular, most were powered by a Bedford petrol engine which gave very modest performance. Based on the Bedford OB lorry chassis as an economic solution to the post-war shortage of a suitable purpose-built coach chassis, the OB/Duple coach became one of the most successful designs of all time.
