This early 1950s York Pullman AEC Regal III and its partner caused quite a stir, when they returned from C.H. Roe after rebodying in the early 1960s, FVY410 and FVY411.
Because of an acute "dog's leg" type bend at Dunnington on the Stamford Bridge route, it was thought better to retain these 27'6" x 7'6" vehicles. Hence their unexpected rebodying. Despite their small size though, they were never fitted up for OMO.
I believe one of these vehicles has been preserved as a "wedding bus" in either Holland or Switzerland.
Note the Vauxhall FA type Victor passing in the opposite direction, I would have thought that by 1965 most of these "rot boxes" would have passed away.
