• A new Portuguese dual-purpose coach body mounted on a Bedford YRQ chassis, and qualifying for the DoE standard bus grant, and a new 12-seater minicoach based on a Ford Transit will be among the highlights of the annual display of new and used coaches opening tomorrow (Saturday) at the Moseley Group of Companies showrooms, Ashby Road Central, Shepshed, near Loughborough.
Known as the Moseley Continental Porto dual-purpose coach, the Bedford YRQ has coachwork built by Salvador Caetano, Porto, to the requirements of Moseley Continental Coachwork Ltd, and represents the latest venture by the Moseley Group in this field. The minicoach is also a new venture for the group, and is named the Ford Transit Moseley Envoy 12-seater minicoach. The body, built in Moseley's own coachworks, features single seats on the nearside and double seats on the offside, all forwardfacing.
The show will be open daily from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm until Sunday, October 24 (inclusive), and will include a wide range of the latest British and Moseley Continental coach models. Location of the showrooms is about 1000 yards west of the Ml motorway, and junction 23 leads direct into Ashby Road.
