JOJ707 was new to Birmingham in 1951. It is a Daimler CVD6 with Metro-Cammell 54 seat body (to operator's design).
This bus belongs to a contract for 150 buses that introduced the second generation of Birmingham's 'New Look' body with concealed radiators. The upper and lower decks were now built together instead of separately. Deeper windows were introduced and the interiors were reduced in quality
This bus, number 2707, spent most of its working life from Liverpool Street garage and passed with the rest of the fleet to the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive in 1969. 2707 was sold for preservation to Maurice Newman in 1971, later changing hands and eventually passing to the late Colin Hawketts who looked after it for many years. It was purchased by the Wythall Transport Museum in 2017.
