The model - The second release of this casting features the Victor in it's mid 1970's style, the entrance and exit gates having been replaced by power operated doors, and the radiator grille having been changed.

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 immediatley behind each nearside wheelarch, and were initially fitted with tubular sliding gates operated by the conductor.

AD7028 was first registered in September 1963 and was rebodied by KMB in 1978. It was withdrawn in 1983.
