501: Leyland Leopard / Willowbrook 
 Padbus 501 Leyland Leopard / Willowbrook B51F
501 (VHO 79J) Leyland Leopard PSU3A.2 / Willowbrook B51F 
This bus was one of the founder members of the Padbus fleet and was originally numbered 165. It was painted lime green and white. A feature of the early Padbus operation was the use of slipboards on the Oxford-Witney services to show the route taken through Eynsham. The graphics technology available at the time did not allow intermediate points to be shown on the destination display. The Enstone Building Society advert is pure fiction. This bus was withdrawn in 1991.
