A-Z of British Bus Bodies sets out to offer a first port of call for anyone with an interest in those who built bus and coach bodies in Britain and Ireland between 1919 and 1975. From charabanc to service bus, from luxury coach to municipal double-decker, the sheer variety of public service vehicle (PSV) bodies is astonishing.

  • Alphabetical listing of British bus body builders between 1919-1975
  • Covers the well-known larger companies and small local companies 
  • Illustrated with period and modern images, including contemporary advertising material
  • Includes a substantial introduction looking at operators of the period, the body building process and the development of bus body building throughout the period
