Southdown 501, JCD501, was the second in a batch of 12 Guy Arab III 6LW with Northern Counties H28/26R bodies ordered for delivery in 1948.
The first 4 chassis were actually delivered to Southdown in February 1948 as Northern Counties were not ready for them. They were bodied in time for delivery in October 1948, although 502 arrived in November after display at the Earls Court show. The rest of the batch did not arrive until 1949.
501 was photographed outside Hyde Park Road Garage, Southsea by Roy Brown in August 1949.
