GRU857 was Hants & Dorset 648, a 1947 Bristol L6G with Beadle coach body. It was converted for bus use (when the large bus-type destination indicator was fitted) in 1953 and was scrapped in 1959.
Service 7 ran to Bournemouth via the Sandbanks Ferry, and the lower body behind the rear axle was cut away slightly to reduce the risk of grounding on the ramp.
