On genuine cobbles and framed by owner's service van and Plaxton coach, SELNEC Northern 6663, SBN763, was an AEC Regent V 2D3RA / Metro Cammell H40/32F. It was new in 1961 as Bolton 163 and was third of the Corporation's six Regent Vs which transferred to the PTE in November 1969.
Many Bolton buses are difficult to date to the exact month as - like several Central Lancashire municipalities - the last PSV Circle histories were published by 1977 with less information. My other fleetlists suggest that these non-standard AECs had a relatively short PTE life after the photo, so I struck lucky.
