Originally built for the MBCTT as No 11 in 1916 by Duncan & Fraser, it was taken over by the M&MTB and renumbered 164. In format it is a single truck drop end open California combination car, but is significantly different in appearance to most other of its era, as it was constructed with an arch roof. It received no major modifications during its life with the exception of fitting of a standard destination box. In 1953 it was presented complete to the AETA, and transferred to the TMSV in 1963.

No 164 was allocated to a number of depots during its life, including Coburg, Preston, Brunswick and Malvern.

Along with T No 180, it is the only surviving ex-MBCTT tramcar. This tramcar is currently on loan to the Victorian Government as part of the Heritage Tramcar Fleet.
