Guy Motors of Wolverhampton, "Individually built" bus advert 1947
"Individually built for long life" says the advert for Guy Motors of Wolverhampton who built bus, lorry and other commercial vehicle chassis. The advert shows the famous Arab head logo - and one of the vans has another Wolverhampton connection in that it is for Ever Ready Batteries who were based there. The double deck bus is a Southampton Corporation Transport bus - one of their many Arabs.
