Chesterfield Corporation 264, GNU264C, a Daimler CCG6 with Weymann forward-entrance body.
Daimler's CCG model was a variant of the better-known CVG, but employing a Guy clutch and constant-mesh gearbox in place of the usual fluid flywheel and epicyclic gearbox. The Guy transmission had an enviable reputation for durability and fuel economy but not for driveability. In Chesterfield their four-square appearance and plodding gait earned these buses the nickname 'horse-boxes'.
