Following the purchase of a solitary AEC Swift in 1966 Leeds went on to buy a further 149 with bodywork by Roe, MCW and Park Royal. The last batch entered service in 1971 and had Roe bodywork. 1057, AUB157J, passes along The Headrow in central Leeds.
Their frontal appearance was derived from the large numbers of dual entrance double deckers which were entering service at the same time. The final PTE livery is carried.
