Edinburgh 739, ESG652, was a Guy Arab III with Metro-Cammell B35R body which was new in 1948.
Originally numbered A139 (the ‘A’, in theory at least, representing a Daimler single-decker with oil engine), it became 739 in the May 1951 renumbering (in which the ‘A’ series buses had 600 added to their number) before becoming 839 in 1956 in order to accommodate the ’56 order of PD2s (701-800).
It is preserved in the number it carried between 1951 and 1956.
Submitted as photographic evidence following recent discussion concerning its destination display.
