Nice little looker.

Advert says Aston but presume it should read Austin

Australians these days are very greedy. They think anything vintage looking is a pot of gold. :roll: This guy is really trying it on, though. :!:
I notice it's rear bumper is the front bumper off an International truck. That should knock about $6000 off the asking price, for lack of authenticity. :roll:

From the chassis style that first bus would be the period 1960 to 1968, not 1952 as it says in the advert. The second one probably around the same time going by the body although the chassis could be older. You never know, I might have helped assemble the first as I was working on the BMC production line in the 60s. Hardest work in my life, nothing seemed to fit together. A lot of brute force involved!

Not a fit environment for child labour.
