1953 Bristol Bus for disposal

The Haynes International Motor Museum are offering a 1953 Bristol KSW6B Lowbridge bus for disposal through sale by tender:

Bus

First introduced in 1950 the KSW was developed from the ‘K’ chassis, with the other letters representing ‘S’ for short and ‘W’ for wide, to meet the newly permitted dimensions of 27′ x 8′. Its design incorporated a sunken aisle to one side of the upper deck in order to reduce its overall height, thus giving it the ‘Lowbridge’ name. Bristol and Gardner engines were available and classified as KSW6B and KSW6G respectively. Production commenced in 1950 and continued until 1957 by which time the revolutionary Bristol Lodekka made the design obsolete. This example was purchased new by Southern National and operated by them throughout its life. Only tenders from museums or relevant heritage groups will be considered.

For more information about the tender process, additional images or to arrange a viewing of the vehicle please contact Darren Hammond, Collections Director at darren.hammond@himm.co.uk  or call 01963 442781.

Closing date for enquiries: 31 August 2017
