Birkenhead Corporation Transport Fleet No. 105, registration No. BG9225 was purchased in 1946. 105 was one of 145 Leyland Titan PD1 models delivered to Birkenhead Corporation between 1946 & 1948.

After World War 2 it took until late 1945 for Leyland Motors to recommence production using parts designed for the MK2 Matilda Tank. Due to the shortages after the war this design was produced for a further eighteen months until Leyland Motors began production of the new PD2.

This 1946 example carries a Wigan built Massey Brothers wooden framed body. 105 was withdrawn from service in May 1960 finding further use as a school bus with Phillips of Bagillt, North Wales.

In 1999 it was fully restored by volunteers at Wirral Transport Museum supported by a 10,000 donation from Ovaltine and 10,000 European funding.
