  A927 MDV - Ford Transit - Ex Devon General 7  

Accession 280 13/05/00

1983 Ford Transit D160 with Carlyle MC B16F body.

No 7 was widely known as Little Willie and so named to celebrate the first year of minibus operation in Exeter having entered service on 26 February 1984, the successful forerunner of nationwide minibus operation involving many thousands of similar vehicles. No 7 is in the custody of the Trust on long term loan from Harry Blundred who is credited with the idea of high frequency minibus operation reaching those parts that bigger buses cannot easily reach!
