Kemp of Chillenden
« Reply #1 on: June 05, 2018, 15:51:26 »
One of the more interesting vehicles owned by Kemp`s Coaches of Chillenden (who later moved to Margate) was not actually a PSV licenced vehicle but this Vauxhall `Big Six` car of the mid-1930s with coach built body seating seven, seen parked in Sandwich Market. GL 5418 had been owned by a hotel in Bath for conveying guests and had passed to Kemp by about 1958, who used it more or less as a taxi in their rural area.
When the time (1965) came for this fine vehicle to depart there were a number of pleas made that it should be preserved and it went to a dealer at St Leonards on that understanding. Unfortunately that was not fulfilled.
