Bedford Buses and Coaches

Until production ceased in 1986, Bedford buses and coaches were a familiar sight on roads across the world. From the ubiquitous Bedford OB and the distinctive six-wheeled Bedford VAL right up to the final model, the air-suspended turbocharged Venturer, the advertising slogan 'You see them everywhere' was perfectly suited to the company.

Covering the period from 1960 until the end of production, this book gives an overview of the majority of models produced during this period including the VAM, VAL and Y types. Containing a brief description of each chassis type and 180 photographs, most in colour and all with informative captions, it showcases the products of the Dunstable factory in their operating heyday.

Chevrolet & British-built Chevrolet Buses (Nostalgia Road)

Prior to the start of the Bedford story in the early 1930s another, even more recognisable name pre-dated the Vauxhall Bedford brand. This was the famous American name of Chevrolet, which was an early supplier of trucks and buses to the British Isles. How the Chevrolet brand developed in Britain, and eventually progressed to become known as Bedford, is not widely appreciated, even though many of the early buses built at Luton were of an American design.

This book tells the story of the British Chevrolet buses.

This book provides a detailed review of the entire range of purpose-built Public Service Vehicle (PSV) bus and coach chassis that carried the Bedford name from 1931 until production ceased in 1986.

Fully illustrated thoughout with hundreds of photographs, the majority in colour, the book includes:
- The origins of Bedford, and its history from 1931 to 1986

Bedford Buses of the 1930s & '40s (Nostalgia Road)

The Bedford VAL (Nostalgia Road)

One of the most iconic British motor coach chassis of all time was Bedfords VAL, which was introduced at the 1962 Commercial Motor Show. This was the first time that Bedford had ventured in to the large-capacity coach market, but it did it with style and a novel engineering approach. Employing a vertically-mounted Leyland engine, a low-height chassis, 16" wheels and a twin-steer front axle, it became the coach of the era. Its modest chassis price also enabled many smaller operators enter into the tour and excursion market.

This book tells the whole story of this Bedford bus.

Bedford Buses of the 1970's & 80's (Nostalgia Road)

The third book in a trilogy on Bedford buses and coaches concludes the firm's history from 1970 to its demise in 1986. Having reached a zenith in the 1950s and 60s, the two decades that followed saw a decline in the reliability of the marque and consequently its share of the market place.
