Regal IV bus

1953 in Southall
The Associated Equipment Company Limited

AEC Regal IV bus with 1 1/2 deck coachwork, 1953, chassis no. 9822E 1495; registration no. NLP 645. The Associated Equipment Company had its origins in the London General Omnibus Company, and produced some of the most famous London bus designs, including the Routemaster. The front engined AEC Regal was first produced in 1929 and used as the basis for many bus and coach designs both in and outside of London. This is an example of the Mark IV AEC Regal which followed in 1950. This particular coach entered service in Sept 1953 with British European Airways as an airport transfer vehicle and was eventually withdrawn in 1967. In 1982 the bus’ bodywork and interior were restored with apprentices at London Transport’s Aldenham Works.
