AEC Regent V, Issue 15

Front Cover
Ian Allan Publishing, Jul 21, 2011 - Transportation - 96 pages
The AEC Regent V was a front-engine double-deck bus manufactured by the Associated Equipment Company between 1954 and 1969, when, as a result of the introduction of the Bus Grant in 1968, production of front-engine buses ceased. The Regent V was the successor to the Regent III and was fitted with AEC's own design of concealed radiator and was supplied generally with either an AEC or Gardner engine. The AEC Regent V found a ready market among British municipal operators, with examples seeing service in fleets nationwide, and with BET-group companies. Apart from the domestic market, the chassis was also widely exported; 210, for example, were sold to Kowloon Motor Bus in Hong Kong. Examples of the Regent V survived in service until the 1980s and a significant number survive in preservation. Transport expert Stewart J. Brown presents the latest title in his string of successful volumes. The book includes descriptive text alongside hundreds of evocative color illustrations.
