Daimler CVA6

In the post-war years, the Daimler CVA6 became the shiny new face of Coventry Transport.  Numbered 1-96 (FHP1-30 and GKV31-96), delivery began in 1948 and all but one were in service by the end of 1950.

GKV72 is seen here at Pool Meadow in the early 1960s, ready to depart working Service 8 to Tile Hill village.  The same Pool Meadow stop was also used for Service 8A to Tile Hill North.


This photograph was supplied by Geoff Cowley, printed from a negative loaned to him by Alf Owen in the early 1960s.
