Introduced in 1946, the Guy Vixen LLV model is a forward control single-deck chassis with a wheelbase of 14ft 9in, designed to carry 29-seat bodywork. It is powered by a Guy 4-cylinder petrol engine of 58bhp and transmission is via a 4-speed constant mesh gearbox to a spiral bevel rear axle.
In 1948 an alternative engine was offered, this being a 4-cylinder Perkins P4 diesel unit. Chassis fitted with this were classified LLVDP. Hydraulic brakes are fitted to both models.
Production of the Vixen ended in 1954.
