OAX 9F - a 1968 Bristol RELH with Leyland O.600 engine & Eastern Coach Works body

This picture shows how the BRISTOL RELH chassis was driven the 267 miles from the Bristol Commercial Vehicles factory (in Bristol) to the EASTERN COACH WORKS factory (in Lowestoft). Note what little protection the driver has.
Most chassis deliveries were made overnight and the drivers would wear about 6 layers of clothing to stay warm.
Apparently, they did used to enjoy a very hearty full English breakfast in the ECW canteen on arrival at Lowestoft!
