May 1969. This bus received a replacement roof from a trolleybus having been involved in an argument with the bridge in Church Road, Portslade while running 'light' to Downsway. Being slightly lower than the other Regents this caused embarrassment to at least one of the inspectors, and tall passengers, who always banged his head on the roof.
