Old Bus Mech (8/4/2016)
Very late information, this engine is a Dennis 06 from around the early 1950's.  I have just finished rebuilding one for fitting to a restored bus here in Western Australia.  A reasonably rare engine, and not the most powerful or reliable piece of machinery ever built.

I always thought it was a Daimler-thanks very much Old Bus Mech.

Up from the bottom with pics from Tel Aviv, the first one could be anything US-made, the second and third are obviously of Ford F8s of which Dan, who used to operate bus services in the greater Tel Aviv area, had a few.

I have no idea what this is - obviously taken a bit earlier. REO?

You're right Tutlebrain-this old bus is a Reo.

Bill: of course. Some of these Opels are very Chevy like. Also, I think the Opel 3.6 L 6 cyl engine is a metric Chev 215 or similar, just like Bedford's six was very close to the Chevy.

Which gives me an excuse to post another GM product... This is Tel Aviv's old bus & coach station, the GMC is about to depart to Beersheba in the Negev desert which then was a 4 hour trip listening to the 4-71 (not appreciated by passengers). At least the chances your luggage will get wet were slim, the Negev desert has weather much like Southern California. Just visible to the left is an E-series Mack, quite a few of which were bodies as buses locally.

Hi T:

The car is an Opel Super Six probably around 1938 as seen below.

Back to the top with a scene from Tel Aviv in the 30s, featuring Dan co-op's Reo and Leyland Titan double-decker. Sedan is I think a 35 Chev?

Hi Hamish:

Another OOPS.  I am jumping between Forums and posting too fast so I will slow down.

Yes, the Dodge is an IHC, probably a C35.  As it is a custom bodied job, I cannot pin down the year exactly, but the 1934-1936 models were all very similar.
