543 - BHO 543C

Bedford CALZ30

  • Fleet Number: 543
  • Registration: BHO 543C
  • Year: 1965
  • Chassis: Bedford CALZ30
  • Engine: Bedford 1600cc
  • Body: Martin Walter M11

New to Epsom Coaches, 543 joined the King Alfred mini bus fleet in January 1967. For reasons unknown it was withdrawn five months later and sold to Bushnell’s of St Mary Bourne that August.

Bought by FoKAB in 2004, 543 has just been extensively restored in our workshops. Very few of the Martin Walter bodied mini coach CALZ’s survive and FoKAB is very pleased to return 543 to the road once again.  The vehicle was successfully displayed at Winchester Cattle Market on Saturday 14th September 2019.  A few small jobs now remain to be done to put the finishing touches to this restoration.
