GCT 238, GG4681, was an AEC Renown 663 demonstrator with Cowieson H32/28R body built in 1932. Originally numbered 50, it became 238 in 1935. It was the only 3-axle motorbus in the fleet and was eventually withdrawn in 1951. Seen here at Lorne School, which was known also as "Govan Depot" near the end of its working days in Glasgow. Its original embellishments, wheel rings and bumper bar had long been removed and the body is showing definite signs of fatigue!
