1949 COMMER AVENGER I The company "Motorways Ltd." started in London in 1920 and operated tours all over Europe, and even to North Africa. Their company slogan was "See Europe from an Armchair". They stopped operating around 1929, and then a new company was started called "Motorways (1930) Ltd". Although the new company had new directors, the coaches and office was the same. This coach would be from the new company. The body is made by Thomas Harrington, of Hove, Sussex. They had a tail sticking out of the back called a "fin", which was used for air conditioning. (Dorsal fin option). This style was started in the 1930s and continued right into the 1950s, but the registration number of this coach - KGW 810 - dates this one to 1949. It is one of four that Motorways bought in that year. More info at: www.thcoachwork.dsl.pipex.com/ The Buick is a 1953 Estate Wagon, last year Buick used real wood.
