Doncaster ceased trolleybus operation in 1963. Like many new and rebuilt trolleybuses of the 1950s, they had well-built Roe bodies and eager to save money, Doncaster hated the idea of scrapping bodies which were not life-expired. Here we see two examples of this re-use of former trolleybus bodies. Doncaster 95, EDT704, was originally an all-Leyland PD2/1 of 1947 and given the body of trolleybus 397. 172, 172GDT, was a new Daimler CVG6 chassis fitted given the body of trolleybus 370.
