Ex-Halifax JOC 277, BCP671, an AEC Regent III 9612E with Park Royal H33/26R body, new in 1950. Seen, along with ex-Liverpool A36, preparing to leave Madeira Drive at the end of the 1973 HCVC London to Brighton Rally.
277 had already been owned by Tony Blackman for over four years, but was still largely as acquired, and well prior to its later extensive restoration back to full PSV status. A close look at the lower cream band at the front offside corner reveals the sagging that was developing alarmingly in the cab area - shades of Crossley styling almost.
Photo of Liverpool A36 taken the same day here.
