PRV2 Guy Arab III / Park Royal PRV2
The Prototype

The first post war Park Royal double decker became a common site in many fleets on a variety of chassis. Some of the favourites, known for their rugged reliability were built on the Guy Arab III.

Midland Red had a fleet of 20 and although typical of the period, the half drop windows and exposed radiators gave them a dated appearance compared with Midland Red`s own designs.

Classified GD6 3557-76 (MHA 57-76) they were operated mainly from Dudley garage and were withdrawn in 1961-2. Southampton Corporation had a fleet of 150 which were delivered between 1948-53 and the entire fleet were Guy`s until 1955.

Following the supply of 435 wartime austerity buses to London Transport, Guy Motors offered a version of their Guy Arab chassis which could be adapted to take the RT body

G 436 (KGK 981) was fitted with a standard Park Royal body and delivered in 1949. It operated initially from Old Kent Road and then from Peckham on route 173. In 1951 it was transferred to Enfield where it worked on route 121 until withdrawn in 1955. Many other fleets operated similar vehicle either new or second hand.
