Recorded in one source initially as having been built from a CKD kit, then as having been built from spare chassis members & parts. However mention is made in the MTT Minutes of 8 May 1969 of a new Panther chassis being available with automatic SCG transmission, then in a Minute from 5 March 1970 that the chassis would arrive without automatic SCG transmission but that Leyland `would supply a conversion kit to update the chassis as soon as the problems had been overcome.`
