' WW2 Guy armoured vehicles were used throughout the war, featuring prominently in the North African campaign and at the evacuation of Dunkirk. Although production of the Ant and Quad Ant were moved to Karrier, the factory was still involved in the war effort producing anti-aircraft guns. Passenger car sales in the UK virtually ceased during the war, which was accordingly a good time to be a UK bus manufacturer, and more than 2,000 Guy double-deck buses entered service between 1942 and 1945. The Ministry of Supply had ordered Guy to produce a chassis suitable for double-deck buses, the blitz having resulted in a shortage of buses. In 1942, Guy launched the Arab I, then II utility deck bus, based on their original 1933 design, but with a frame of identical shape to the Leyland Titan TD8. It was immediately successful, due to its reliability and low running costs. The company's contribution to the war effort established them as a leading supplier for the government and meant they were financially stable heading into the post-war years. '
