The last of 5 buses (Nos 650-654) delivered in October 1990 in Stagecoach 'stripes' livery with United Counties fleetnames. After a brief time at Northampton, 654 was allocated to Kettering depot whilst the other four went to Huntingdon. The bus became 14054 under Stagecoach renumbering. It later spent some time at Bedford depot before being withdrawn in 2010 and subsequently sold to Mortons Coaches of Tadley near Basingstoke who used it on rail replacement and school services. In 2016 the bus entered Morton heritage fleet and regained Stagecoach livery with Hampshire Bus fleetnames. The bus was acquired for continuing preservation by a group of enthusiasts in May 2018 and now carried United Counties livery. The bus is now in the care of members of Northampton Transport Heritage.
