Bristol LS Bus
Date:1950
Registration:MAH 744
Acquired by the Museum:1994
Current State:Fully restored and operational
Registered MAH 744, LL744 was the second prototype for the Bristol LS type chassis. New to Eastern Counties in 1950 and fitted with a Gardner 4LW engine and Eastern Coachworks 42 seat front entrance bodywork, this vehicle has had a long life with the company, being donated to the Museum in 2003.

It was restored in 1980 by Eastern Counties apprentices, and was then placed on loan to the Eastern Transport Collection. It was then placed on loan to the Ipswich Transport Museum in 1994, and in 1996 was returned to the road with the help of First Eastern Counties.

It now regularly attends rallies representing both First Eastern Counties and the Ipswich Transport Museum.
