Maxwell 25cwt Charabanc

On Display

This bus is typical of the light and cheap American chassis that were popular in Britain in the 1920s before mass-produced British vehicles became available. It is fitted with a typical 1920s thirteen-seater charabanc body.

This example was discovered in a dilapidated state in a Herefordshire breaker's yard in 1957. It regularly takes part in the Historic Commercial Vehicle Club's London to Brighton Run each May.
