Fans of the film will remember this iconic Bedford OB bus racing 1401 under a road bridge and nearly crashing - its safer by train!

In the summer of 1939, Bedford, GM's commercial vehicle arm in the United Kingdom, introduced three new lorry chassis: the "K," "M," and "O." The last was intended to keep Bedford at the top of the commercial vehicle market.



A passenger version, dubbed "OB," was swiftly produced to complement the new lorries after over 50% of all British small bus/coach chassis sold in the 1930s were Bedfords.



The outbreak of war interrupted production, although a wartime version, the OWB, was developed in 1941. OB manufacturing resumed in October 1945, and by the time manufacturing halted in 1951, hundreds of chassis had been produced at Luton.



Coachbuilder Duple bodied over 8,700 OBs and 3,864 carried the famous Vista body. This combination gave rise to the classic OB look and it forms the basis of our model.
