Willowbrook was an English bus bodybuilder. Founded in 1927, it acquired the business of Stokes & Holt, Leicester. In 1952 it acquired a patent from Brush Traction to build metal-framed bodies. Sold to Duple Coachbuilders in September 1958, and then in a management buyout in 1971, it ceased in 1983.[1][2]
