1923 bus made of wood, iron and leather, with a semi-metallic body.

11-seater transport vehicle, produced in 1923 in Arbúcies, with a Chevrolet engine and chassis. It ran for forty years, until the metal body with an iron pipe replaced the wood and semi-metalic body, as it represented less weight. The coachbuilding industry in Arbúcies has become the driving force behind the town's economy. With the characteristic red colour of the Solé company, this is an iconic exhibit in the museum and one of the most memorable pieces seen by visitors.
