New in 1955, as West Yorkshire CUG19, OWX136 was a Bristol LS6G with an E.C.W. C39F body. It was withdrawn in December 1970, fitted with a 5HLW engine in July 1971 and sold to North (dealer) in May 1972.
According to the P.S.V. Circle Fleet History it had "gone for scrap" in July 1972. However, rather than being scrapped, it was acquired by Asian Greyhound (Swagman), Windsor and is seen here, at Crawley, taking part in the British Coach Rally after the seating had been reduced to C35F and heavy duty springs had been fitted giving it a much higher ride height suitable for its journey to India.
