Ex Oldham Corporation leyland panthers

Post by Charterplan »


I live in Oldham in the UK and a member of a local transport museum in Manchester, and am trying to find out if any of these buses still survive in Australia.
I was told that there may be one or two that are mobile homes now, but am trying to also find out if the original number blinds are still fitted, as I very much would like to aquire them for another Oldham bus, which unfortunately had those removed before it was withdrawn in Greater Manchester.

i know its a long shot, as these vehicles will be about 43 years old, but obtaining the number blinds as a pattern for new to be made is needed.
