Is that the vehicle that migrated into the care and keeping of Geoff Newham years ago?

From the Kingsgrove operator information:"In 2005, the former Krispy Kreme advertising Bedford SB3 with Syd Wood bodywork (body number 1906 3/5/62 B45F) was purchased for preservation. The bus had previously been displayed at the 1992 Bus & Coach Show at Warwick Farm, restored in the livery of its original operator, Parsons Bus Service Pty Ltd at Wauchope, who had stored the bus since its withdrawal in 1982. Kingsgrove repainted the Bedford into a traditional colour scheme of two tone green and cream with Kingsgrove Bus & Coach sign writing in 2005."
I feel sure it used to be in the fleet list but I can no longer fond it.

Parson sold out to King Bros in 2000. Post that sale I saw the Bedford on display (from a local historical group) at Timbertown at Wauchope on a couple of visits there. Then it became the Krispy Kreme bus on the Great Western Highway (where Bunnings is now located).
