GUY BT SERIES
Introduced in 1926 as Guy's first trolleybus model, the BT was a 2-axle chassis, suitable for carrying either single or double-deck bodywork.
The single-deck version had a wheelbase of 17ft 3 1/2in whilst the double-deck model had a 16ft wheelbase.
Shortly after those two models had gone into production a 3-axle version was launched, this being classified BTX60, with a wheelbase of 16ft 4"
designed to carry 26ft long bodywork. A longer 3-axle model was also available classified BTX66, this being built to carry 27ft long coachwork.
In 1935, the BTX66 was lengthened to 30ft and given a wheelbase of 18ft 21/2in.
The early models were fitted with Rees-Stevens electrical equipment, this being superseded after a short time by equipment of Guy design, built by Electrical Construction ltd.
Production was suspended due to the second world war in 1939, but resumed again in 1947. The BT series finally ceased to be built in 1950.
