Postby Denv12 » Mon Feb 17, 2014 8:29 am

Over the years Ansair,part of Ansett Transport Industries,has been a big player in the bus and coach industry.I'm starting up this post to cover some photos of buses and coaches built by this company.You are all welcome to contribute anything that fits in with this topic.It would be nice to look back on their history throughout the years.Thanks for stopping by.

A few years ago, the Bus and Coach Society published the History of Ansair in our 2008 Special. It is 60 pages and covers every type of Ansair body (that we are aware of anyway). It is still available for $9 (BCSV, PO Box 33, Caulfield East 3145). The history is far too much for me to summarise here.

Hi, I have only recently joined the forum and was wondering if the publication from 2008 is still available for purchase? I have just acquired a 1950 Ansair bus/coach and would love to find out more about its history. Thanks!
