South Midland SFC 571 (fleet number 85)                                                      C37F
(conv to C39F 1961)

Many vehicles were later converted to more conventional opening front windows. Some companies ( notably Crosville, Hants & Dorset, Lincolnshire & Southern Vectis ) eventually  converted their vehicles to dual purpose vehicles or buses with the fitment of jack-knife doors and modified destination boxes in the front dome. 

Very similar bodies were supplied to Royal Blue and United at the same time. These lacked cantrail windows. 

The Royal Blue vehicles (on Bristol LS chassis) had roof luggage racks and transparent panels above the windows with the ‘Royal Blue Coach Service’ legend.

LTA 867-73/MOD 973-9 (fleet numbers 1279-92)          C41F (converted to C39F 1960)

The United vehicles (on Leyland Royal Tiger chassis) had different side mouldings, an additional destination box for an illuminated fleetname, and side panel displays above the windows for ‘Tyne-Tees-Thames Service’. The first batch also had half drop windows.

PHN 801-4 (fleet numbers LUT1-4)        C38F (converted to C39F 1960/1)
RHN 778-72 (fleet numbers LUT 5-9)     C38F (converted to C39F 1960/1)
