Birmingham became the first operator to run single deck Daimler Fleetlines when it took delivery of a batch with Marshall bodywork in 1965. Seen here is 3472, BON472C. The body seated 37 which was much lower than later examples which were designed as single deckers from the off rather than adapted double deck chassis as is the case here. Later examples would have the engine enclosed and be designated SRG (for Saloon rear Gardener) rather than the CRG of the double deck chassis.
