The Back End of the Bus

Rochdale Corporation bought several batches of AEC Regent Vs in the mid fifties, all were fitted with Weymann bodywork but rather than the ubiquitous Orion bodywork, they were fitted with a body that had more in common with early post war styling. The near vintage curve on the rear dome is seen in this rear view of 322, TDK322, a 1959 AEC Regent V D2RA
The use of an enclosed platform on a muncipal bus was unusual in the fifties
