In 1951 Manchester Corporation Transport took delivery of the only Crossley TDD64 chassis built, complete with Crossley H36/30R 8-feet wide bodywork, numbered 1240 to 1255 JVU745-760. 1253 JVU758 is seen in Miller Street on 23 April 1959 on service 213 to Greenhays.
Service 213 converted to motorbuses five weeks later.
Withdrawal came in April 1963 with the conversion of service 210 to Hyde and Gee Cross, with disposal to Blair, breakers, of Manchester.

One of this batch, 1250 JVU755, is preserved at the Greater Manchester Transport Museum, Boyle Street.
