Providing transport to and from lunch for the judges at the British Coach Rally was Southdown, Brighton 451, GUF191, a Guy Arab II (5LW) new in 1945 with a Northern Counties H30/26R body.
It was reseated to H28/26R in 1953 and later rebuilt to open top. Although the P.S.V. Circle Fleet History PK1 (June 1957) and amendment PK1A (February 1962) make no mention of this being done, Dick Gilbertís Classic Buses site records that it was rebuilt to O30/26R in March 1959 and is the sole survivor of 100 Southdown Guy Arabs.
