The bus
-  
KMB was the only customer for the Albion Victor VT23L and 100 examples were received during 1963/64. The 41-seat bodywork was delivered as ckd kits from Metal Sections. They featured two doorways, both of which were immediately behind each nearside wheelarch, and the tubular sliding gates were operated by the conductor.

AD7080 was first registered in June 1964. Folding doors replaced the sliding gates later in life, and several vehicles were rebodied by KMB in the late 1970's, including AD7080. It was withdrawn in January 1984.
