Portsmouth Corporation 35, EBK572, one of 29 all-Crossley DD42/7T new in 1949 and disposed of by 1967.
By 1965, the HOE7 engines and turbo-converters had been replaced by an indirect-injection diesel engines and gearboxes from scrapped 1934 Leyland TD4 buses which must have improved reliability and fuel consumption figures immeasurably, despite the advanced age of the replacement units!
