Safari's also! Looking at your other pics I see left hand loading doors, was it RHD or LHD? Very cool bus, would be an incredible find today.

He put the sun visor on at a later stage, he told us that shortly after buying it from a dealership in Melbourne after a six month wait, he took a trip up to Queensland and passed lots of people with over heating cars, which he thought was funny at the time because his didn't need water. He also said when ever he pulled up anywhere and returned to his bus there was always people looking underneath for the engine, he said he found that amusing also. He used it part time as a delivery van around Melbourne as he worked at the railways, he didn't like the fact the boxes were wrecking the seats.

No.I hope it's not the one from Geelong Victoria Australia that was shipped over to England a few years back because I wanted to buy it at the time but sometimes some Aussies would rather look after there mates in England so I missed that RHD factory sunroof micro bus.But a bus as good as Pops old bus should still be out there today,I hope it's still in Australia because it was one of the first micro factory sunroof buses here if not the first in Australia going of the numbers I have.So if you see it please let me know. Cheers Chris
