City of Oxford AEC Regent V 191AWL & AEC Reliance 756KFC
Classic vehicles representing the old City of Oxford Motor Services fleet pose side by side at Showbus 97 in the maroon, red and duck egg green colours. 191 (191AWL) is an unusual AEC Regent V lowbridge Weymann decker sporting the exposed radiator grill more normally associated with the earlier Regent III model. Alongside is AEC Reliance/Park Royal 756 (756KFC), one of the still minority singledeck vehicles in the Oxford fleet.
 

Ten years later and 756 was at SHOWBUS again. A beautiful pair of nostalgic BET singledeckers. On the left, Michael Flynn's Weymann bodied 1957 Leyland Tiger Cub, North Western 696 (KDB696) and on the right Neil Tidbury's 1960 Park Royal bodied Reliance, City of Oxford 756 (756KFC).
 
City of Oxford Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetline MJO382H
Outstationed at Stokenchurch was 382 (MJO382H) one of a large Daimler Fleetline fleet with dual door Northern Counties lowheight bodywork, normally found working in Oxford City. The dual door and lowheight always gave them a claustrophobic feeling inside. This picture was taken by a Thames Valley driver when the vehicle was new.
 
City of Oxford Northern Counties bodied Daimler Fleetline Dash
The Thames Valley driver was clearly impressed with the cab layout as he took this picture of it. A sharp contrast to the half cab Bristol FLF buses which Thames Valley operated at the time.
