Covering all the motor bus and trolleybus products of Guy Motors, this book recounts the history of an iconic British coachbuilder.

  • The origin of Guy Motors and the innovative early designs
  • Expansion during the 1920s and development of trolleybuses
  • Early adoption of diesel engines for use in buses and coaches
  • The rebirth of the Arab during the World War II and evolution into the design that was to be seen everywhere until the 1970s
  • Guy Motors as a developer of air suspension and disc braking for commercial vehicles
  • Fully illustrated with archive material, contemporary marketing materials and new colour photography of preserved Guy buses and coaches
