Ford R192 and R226 Bus

The buses on this site are actively tracked. The last registration record search was 4 March 2010.

The R192 and R226 where the first of the Ford R series buses. The R192 was little different from the Ford Thames bus chassis from which it was derived. The numbers in the models indicate the length of the wheelbase in inches. Some of the R226 buses were registered as their metric equivalent R1114.
