Southdown 1823, LUF823, a 1951 Harrington bodied Leyland PSU1/15 'Royal Tiger' seen after being up-seated from 32 seats to 41 in Spring 1961. The vehicle was about to be taken to Victoria Road Works in Portslade for a repaint from which it emerged all green and re-entered service as fleetnumber 1683. Withdrawn circa 1967/68.
These were replaced as front line Touring Cars by the Harrington 'Cavalier' bodied Leyland Leopards.
