Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

coach bodies are those now being produced for Millburn Motors, Ltd., Glasgow, by the Junction Motor Body Building Co., Ltd., 161, Oldham Road, Manchester, 10, incorporating an Albion chassis with the maker's fourcylindered oil engine and overdrive gearbox. One of the new machines is intended fo'r luxury touring, but provides seats for 33 passengers.

The body is of all-wood construction, braced with fish-plates. The boot. of approximately .50 cubic ft. capacity. is located at the rear, whilst batteries are housed in a flush-panelled compartment on the near side and a spare wheel in a similar locker on the off side.

The interior plan provides for seven double seats on each side and a bench for five at the back. Minimumspacing from back to back of the seats is 32 ins., giving approximately 12 ins, of knee room. The seats are built up on frames of Junction manufacture and are upholstered in full moquette, with Dunlopillo cushions and spring back rests.

Melloroid inserts are provided for all wearing parts. Head linings are of Rexine, with full moquette covering for the entrance door.

Windows include four Quicktho halfdrop lights, in addition to a Young's

full-drop window for the emergency door. Excellent interior racks are provided for light luggage, and the coach is equipped with a radio set under the driver's control. There are 22 interior lights of modern design, and a Weathershield's sliding roof for summer use.

Quicktho continuous louvres are incorporated, and the body panelling falls to the neat Junction skirt rail, which, although rigid in use, can be lifted in order to permit easier access to the chassis, a point which will appeal to the maintenance engineer.
