Guy Vixen? Surely this is more like a Thames 4D?

Comments please.

Yes, it is a Thames 4D. (I saw this and meant to pick it up.) Maybe whoever labelled it (Alexander?) was misled by http://www.thisbrighton.co.uk/Images/hcvs-guy-bus.jpg which used the same metal round the front?

Sure chris40, I remember the bus version now as well, thanks.

Eastern Coachworks that built the buses must have had access to the Thames (Ford) owned tooling for the front end.

I don't remember what led me to my assumption, but probably it was the mentioned London Transport bus:

Correction to the model name: Thames ET6 not '4D'

The prominent '4D' badges referred to the diesel engined versions or Ford/Thames trucks.
