Rochdale switched to Daimler for its new bus requirements in the early fifties; however in 1956 it returned to AEC buying Regent Vs albeit with Gardener engines, a most unusual combination. 280, NDK980 dates, from 1956 and carries a Weymann body to a style the was superceded by the Orion design.
Later examples of this design would have platform doors and AEC engines
