Synopsis

At the end of World War II, Britain was desperate for new buses and coaches. The manufacturers who had built them is the 1930s hade been diverted to war production and only a tiny number of buses were built during the war. So, many companies new to making buses came into the business after the war, so that the late 1940s and the 1950s saw a fascinating variety of different types reaching the market. In this book the twenty-seven bus manufacturers of the period - large and small - are dealt with in A-Z order, from AEC to Vulcan. The author gives a brief history of each and then provides individual coverage of the models produced, using material from brochures and advertisements for the illustrations to give the flavour of the period.

He has written very widely for both magazines and books on motoring subjects but has specialized in the history of Rover cars and Land Rovers. He has owned four Range Rovers as well as a variety of other cars, and continues to write for the motoring press both at home and abroad. His previous books include Rover V8 - The Story of the Engine, Factory-Original Ford Capri Mk1, Factory-Original Mercedes SL, Factory-Original Aston Martin DB4/5/6 and Factory-Original Mini Mk1 & Mk2. James lives in rural Oxfordshire, surrounded by books about cars, and usually with something old and interesting in his garage.
