Registration Number BKH 172B Leyland Panther with Roe bodywork was built for the 1964 Earl's Court Show and destined for Kingston-upon-Hull. This may have been a Park Royal design as it was one of many orders transferred from Park Royal to their Roe subsidiary. Measuring 36 feet by 8 foot 2½ inches, this all metal bus was the first 36 footer built at the Roe works at Crossgates, Leeds.

The leftmost bus in this image is a curiosity. It is definitely a PRV bodied Leyland Panther (Body No. B52908) and is pictured here in Stockholm along with two unidentified "fleet siblings". This one-off bus was new in November '64 predating the first main batch of Stockholm bound PRV-Panthers by some 20 months yet having a considerably later fleet number A75412. I suspect that this bus was built as a demonstrator and shipped to Stockholm for test purposes before the contract for the main batch of 200 similar buses was signed (Photo: Supplied by Eric Jones but ©Unknown).

Incidentally, Storstockkholms Lokaltrafik (Greater Stockholm Transport Board) operated 200 Leyland Panther single-deckers and 50 Atlantean double-deckers bodied by Park Royal. The single-deckers were in service between 1967 to about 1984 (double-decker operation ceased in 1976). Please visit the Svenska Omnibusföreningen (Swedish Omnibus Association) website where you will find links to photos and descriptions of their preserved buses (it's in Swedish but the Google toolbar translator solves the issue for those like me! Ed.).
