The London Motor Omnibus Co, otherwise known as Vanguard. formed a subsidiary MOC - Motor Omnibus Construction.

1906 they began to produce double-deckers. They used Armstrong Whitworth engines.

The Sussex Motor Road Car Co bought an MOC and in 1908 fitted it with a Mackenzie Slipper design of charabanc body. This meant that the rear passengers were seated very high up because the seats were all 5 inches higher than the row in front.
