Further Bedford VAM70 saloons arrived with Willowbrook B33D+25 bodies. A single bus 823, JRU459E, was followed by a batch of 10 numbered 3001-10 MRU64-73F and these were later renumbered 1505-1515, including this one, MRU68F.
Wilts and Dorset also received some identical vehicles numbered 815-20 LMR735-740F, later renumbered to a 500 series. These buses were later upseated to B41D+19 and some of the Hants and Dorset ones had front and rear profiles to suit operation over the Sandbanks Ferry. At least one of the Wilts and Dorset ones 507 ended up in this collection of withdrawn vehicles, in poppy red with Hants and Dorset fleetnames.
