Manchester’s COG5 double deckers were very successful, and so unsurprisingly their first postwar Daimlers were CVG5s.
But with an unladen weight of around 8 tons these were less satisfactory, so CVG6s were then purchased until lighter bodywork became available in the mid-fifties (together with some lightweight chassis features arising from the development of the CLG5).
Would it have been usual practice – by Daimler, if no-one else – to include such information at the beginning or end of their destination rolls?
They were fine vehicles spoilt by the somewhat excessive engine vibration which necessitated body rebuilds after the war.
Bodywork was generally lighter before the war than after, and the COG5 was Daimler’s most popular model for both single and double deck vehicles.
GNU 750 is a Daimler COG5-40 (8485) with Willowbrook (3208) C35F body, and dates from 1939.
It is preserved in the livery of Blue Bus Services (Tailby & George) who were based at Willington in Derbyshire.
