Ford Thames coach with US Air Force

B series

Recommended Posts


I have not seen this style of coach on a Ford Thames chassis before, I don't know who the bodybuilder was, but I have to say that windscreen is just wrong.....

and I am sure I can see the top half of a double dekker bus in there somewhere. Would this be late 1950's?


I bet the american's had a few interesting comments about English vehicles when this was delivered.

it's an odd duck, but probably what you'd get if you applied 1950's American School Bus design rules to a British chassis.

The high roof, and rounded rear windows make me think this.
