1. HY6504
2057, HY6504 seems, with a bit of research, to have been quite a significant vehicle as from what I can make out it was the first Bristol J, but Iím open to correction. Itís a lot older than it looks, being new as early as 1932 as a demonstrator to Southern National. It was rebodied in 1945 with this BBW B33D body and presumably fitted with a PV2 radiator at the same time. It lasted until 1958.

It was acquired by Bristol Tramways in June 1934 and numbered J122, being renumbered 2007 in 1937 when it received a Gardner 5LW engine.
