The Bristol MW is a bus and coach chassis designed and built between 1956 and 1964 by Bristol Commercial Vehicles Ltd at Brislington, Bristol. The abbreviation MW stands for Medium Weight. It had a horizontally mounted engine under the floor between the two axles allowing an entrance door ahead of the front axle and a completely flat floor area, making it easy for one man operation. The chassis was provided either by a coach builder or a bus builder. All MW chassis were fitted with a Gardner 5 cylinder or 6 cylinder engine with chassis type designations either as MW5G or –as our model – MW6G. The transmission comprised a manual forward 5-speed gearbox.
For our first release, we have chosen a famous livery of the period – Royal Blue – registered 759 MDV and decorated in their famous cream and royal blue scheme. The Royal Blue name is printed in blue on both sides beneath the side window and features again on the back in cream inset below the rear window. A further detail includes the Bristol badge on the black and silver radiator.The destination blind on the front above the radiator shows it on its way to Guildford, Winchester and Bournemouth. The roof lights, many vented side windows and wrap-around front and rear windows must have provided passengers with magnificent views.
