These Daimler Freeline coaches were governed to 43 mph. Possibly because of the speed restriction, new coaches were purchased in 1964 and the Freelines were subsequently converted to buses with destination blinds. There were several versions of the Freeline, some with Gardner engines and some with Daimler Engines. The D650H/S had a Daimler engine, but Coventry chose the G6H/S with the Gardner engine.
