|This is one of
the earliest Bristol buses, known as the C-type.
||BAE 592 is an
example of a 4-ton chassis. These were bodied both as buses
and as small lorries as shown here and were manufactured in the
1920s . I have known this
particular example for many years as it resided in a showman's yard
near my home when I was a child. I did try and purchase it
once, but it languished derelict until rescued and restored by a
local road stone company who owned a nearby quarry.
|The next volume
production chassis to follw the two- and four-ton chassis was the B-type,
manufactured from 1931 to 1935, also known as the
"Superbus". An early example for Bristol city
services is shown here.
