About This Bedford OB

This 1946 Bedford OB with Grice body originally operated in Toowoomba, QLD until the mid-1970s. It was subsequently acquired by John Masterton, a bus enthusiast and owner of Bellarine Bus Lines with John then completing a superb restoration. Driver Classics purchased the Bedford OB from the Masterton family in July 2000. Driver Classics sold the 1946 Bedford OB to Campe’s Motor Museum, Hamilton VIC in April 2024, where it will be on permanent display to the public.

This Bedford OB is powered by a Bedford 214ci, 6 cylinder, petrol engine with a 4 speed constant mesh transmission. Bedford’s OB model designation signifies ‘O’ as the model series and ‘B’ for bus.
