Crosville Motor Services Ltd Fleet No. 105, registration No. 319 PFM. New to Crosville's Edge Lane Depot, Liverpool in 1961. DFG 38 is a Bristol FS6G "Lodekka" which used a drop centre rear axle and offset transmission to allow the lowering of the lower deck gangway, which along with rear air suspension maintains an overall vehicle height of 13 feet 3 1/4 inches allowing them to pass under low bridges that had insufficient clearance for standard double deckers.

DFG38 is fitted with a Gardner 6LW engine and five speed gearbox, along with a cave-brown-cave ventilation and heating system which replaces the conventional radiator with two radiators on either side of the destination blinds, providing warm air flow and vetilation to the saloons.

The bus survived as a driver training vehicle into the 1990's passing into private preservation and then to the Wirral Transport Museum in 2007. Since then its original registration number has been restored.
