PUF596R is a Bristol VRTSL3 new to Southdown in January 1977. This vehicle is not one of ours but is owned by a friend and has just emerged from workshops having been re-paneled and carrying a splendid repaint into 'National' green livery.
The bus also sports a period advert for Uncle Sams Burgers of Brighton. Further detail includes the reproduction 'Chairman's Award for Innovation' vinyls from 1981. Owner and vehicle called in at our workshops today and very welcome they were too!
