The Woodford Tours unit looks to be a Custom Coaches body? It has the stock O.303 front on it.

From memory that body style (Woodfords) was called the "Custom Hyliner" by Custom Coaches, most commonly fitted on Volvos.

A quick visit to http://www.busaustralia.com/fleetlists/wangaratta.htm reveals that the vehicle pictured is body number 51. The first Coach Concepts body is Wangaratta #26

Not to sound smart but more to help with info. for the enthusiasts I have to make a correction. The 0303 with CCMC Hyliner body isn't a 1982 model as stated (sorry). As someone who worked on not only the first 2 Volgren Twin decks in Australia but also the first 2 Hyliners built as well (I worked at Westbus when they were brand new), I ended up seeing the photographed vehicle here when it was just a metal frame on the assembly line at Custom Coaches. If it didn't go on the road in late '87 it went on the road in early '88, in time for Expo in Qld.

It was a great machine though, even as an apprentice I appreciated the build quality and the fact that it wasn't on a Volvo chassis!

I really loved the years of my early working life at Westbus Coaches.
