KSW3
Bristol KSW / ECW
(High Bridge)
Bristol KSW Highbridge - KSW 3
The KSW was developed from the 'K' chassis 'S' for short (a long version was never produced) and ' W' for wide to meet the newly permitted dimensions of 27' x 8'.

Bristol and Gardner engines were available and classified as KSW6B and KSW6G respectively.

Production commenced in 1950 and continued until 1957 by which time the revolutionary Bristol Lodekka made the design obsolete.

Some 'K' and 'KS' chassis were also fitted with KSW style 8' wide bodies.

A list of the companies which operated KSW Highbridge vehicles follows;
