Manchester 4265, GNC60, Daimler COG5 - Metro Cammell H28/26R at Warwick Road, Old Trafford was from a batch of 83 vehicles ordered. Due to the war only 58 chassis were delivered with bodywork split between Metro Cammell and English Electric - the other chassis were destroyed by enemy action at the Daimler works before delivery.
Some of the bodies rendered spare were sold to Birmingham whilst others were used for other later Manchester vehicles. Entering service in September 1940 it gave twenty-one years of service before withdrawal.
