Ex UK AEC Reliance coach information wanted

Postby Pinza » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:34 pm

Hi all.

I was wondering if any of you nz enthusiasts out there have any information regarding the 3 ex UK London Country ‘RP’ AEC Reliance’s that we’re imported in the early 1980’s and rebodied by Hawke. They were basically good robust mechanical coaches that were let down by a less robust Park Royal body - especially the earlier ones.

The old fleetlists have them last seen a good few years ago and one is still believed to be existent as a mobile home conversion. I was on the last service trip of RP80 and would be fascinated to see if it still exists. (Or some of it) The other were RP57 listed as Bayes Coachlines in Auckland, RP62 as Madge Coaches and RP80 was listed as Bayes as well.

Any new information would be great
