Notes
This was a demonstrator bus.
The last demonstrator for 1963 saw the arrival ofan example of a newly released chassis, the medium-weight Royal Tiger Cub. While the Worldmasters had electric semi-automatic transmission (epicyclic) mounted on the steering column, the new #5 had a real air-operated pneumocyclic mounted on a pedestal on the floor. Supposedly not as powerful as a Worldmaster, #5 was equally as reliable.
