Felix Motors 43, 932BWR, an AEC Regent V with Roe H41/32RD bodywork which was delivered new to Felix in 1962 is seen loading for Armthorpe, a service operated jointly with Blue Line and Doncaster Corporation. 43 was acquired by SYPTE with the Felix business in April 1976 and was renumbered 1164 by them.
If we had an award for the most elegant livery Felix would surely have to be a contender although stiff competition would have come from a number of other firms in the Doncaster area notably Blue Ensign. I always felt that the Regent Vs looked particulary fine in Felix colours and the charm of the buses and the friendly crews (conductresses with TIM machines) always epitomised a "proper" bus company.
