HISTORY This is the final Morris Motors Brass Band Coach, built in 1961.  It was specially designed with a large capacity boot to take all the musical instruments, which raised the height of the back half of the coach, giving the passengers a good view as they drove to engagements.  The vehicle was rescued from a Coventry cleaning company and restoration was begun by volunteers from Morris Motors.  Further restoration was later taken over by the Oxford Bus Museum, where the vehicle is now kept, and used on the road during special events.
