The author suggests that, with its unique and ultra-modern styling, the bedford reebur 17-seat coach has set a new image for a vehicle of this capacity mounted on a light van chassis. This coach is based on a bedford cf340 van chassis with a 3.2 M wheelbase, supplied to the bodybuilder reeve Burgess Ltd in chassis/cowl form. A brief specification of the coach is given, together with details of the all-metal body and interior arrangements as illustrated by photographs. A series of tests is described involving a test coach loaded in an equivalent manner to 17 passengers. With the driver and an observer, the load amounted to 1206 kg, and performance figures were obtained under both motorway and rural road conditions. In spite of adverse weather conditions the 4-cylinder, overhead camshaft diesel engine of 2.062 litre capacity returned overall petrol consumption figures of 29.1 miles per gallon. /TRRL/
