1960s touring coaches with 28 luxurious seats

When delivered new to Southdown of Sussex, fleet number 1722 (1961) and number 1749 (1963) were used on exclusive luxury tours throughout Britain and the Continent. Built by Harrington of Hove and each fitted with 28 sumptuous, well spaced reclining armchair seats, these delightful vehicles are ideal for smaller groups and wedding parties requiring luxurious surroundings.

Externally, coach 1722 features distinctive curved-glass roof windows which let the light flood in. It carries the unusual earlier Southdown coach livery with cream roof and window surrounds. Coach 1749 has more recently re-entered service after a complete restoration and features large 'panoramic' picture windows, giving unparalleled views of the passing countryside.

Save for minor decorative features, the interior layout of each coach is identical. Seats are arranged in a 2+1 configuration: on entering the coach, a column of comfortable double-armchair seats is arranged to the left-hand side and single-armchair seats to the right.

Both coaches have a large boot and side lockers - ideal for luggage or picnics. We very much hope that you will enjoy using these lovely vehicles.
