271 was new to Southampton City Transport in October 1981 after being withdrawn in 2004. It was sold to Translux for use as a mobile dining vehicle where it was used at Pinewood recording studios.

It was brought back to Southampton in October 2010 and has since had a new front fitted and gained an M.O.T and appeared at its first rally on the Isle of Wight on 16th October 2011. Further work is planned on 271 with re-spraying it back into red skirt, then cream, then red and a cream roof. This was the livery it carried in 1988.
