Guy Arab LUF chassis with SARO (Saunders Roe) single-deck bodywork
Guy Motors (demonstrator), then Blue Line
Dark and light blue
The first buses with underfloor engines were very heavy, so, like other manufacturers in the early 1950s, Guy introduced lighter weight single-deck chassis. Built as a demonstrator, this vehicle, has a lightweight Saunders Roe aluminium framed body. Although
no further Guys were built with that body, this vehicle had a full life with Doncaster independent, Blue Line.
Many LUF chassis used the lighter 5-cylinder Gardner engine, but LJW has the standard 6LW 6-cylinder version, but only has a 12 volt electrical system, which still limits its use!
