Unit 1750-2750-1751 was an add-on order of 1962 tube stock, for just one three-car unit; thus it was unique, as all other 1962-stock units were four cars long.
1992 tube stock, 93420, got comprehensively "re-styled" on the same buffer-stops more recently, and in fact was sent away to Derby for rebuilding with the actual ironwork thereof still embedded within the carriage!
