The London Underground 1973 Stock is a type of rolling stock used on the Piccadilly line of the London Underground. They normally run in either 6-car or 3-car formations.

The more common 6-car consist is formed by coupling two DM+T+UNDM formations; driver motorcar (DM), trailercar (T), and "uncoupling non-driver motorcar" (UNDM).

The 3-car consist, also known as a 'double ended unit', is formed by a DM+T+DM formation. These 3-car consists can run on their own, but can also service coupled with a DM+T+UNDM formation. The double ended units where intended to create more flexibility in rolling stock deployment; for example to replace a DM+T+UNDM formation when it is out of service for maintenance, and to operate the now closed Aldwych branch of the Piccadilly line.
