Doncaster abandoned its trolleybus system in 1963 however with typical Yorkshire thrift they had a number of trolleybus bodies transferred to motor bus chassis. These were both new and old stock. Seen in Doncaster are 96 EDT705 a 1948 Leyland Titan PD2/1 which originally carried a body by Leyland it ran in this guise until 1973. Passing 95 is 172 172GDT a 1962 Daimler CVG6 which was also bodied using a former trolleybus body converted to a half cab layout. This bus survived to pass to South Yorkshire PTE in 1974.
The rebodied buses where slighty taller than the norm and had a tell tale thicker window pillar on the top deck which housed the electrics on the trolleybuses They also had rather more upright profile than the norm.
