Bow Belle Coaches (Philips & Co), North Tawton, Devon WYA875, a Bedford SBG with Duple Super Vega C41F body, new in 1956/57.
A magnificent, classic 'Butterfly Grille' petrol-engined Super Vega is seen resting on Ilfracombe Harbour car park awaiting the return of its passengers. In beautiful condition and a tastefully restrained livery, it would have seemed a suitable candidate for survival into eventual preservation, but it sadly does not appear in any lists of such.
