Bus Chassis on a low loader

Postby Ben_Daui » Mon May 07, 2018 7:25 pm

Observed this unidentified bus on the low loader trailer at North Ryde today on Lane Cove Rd going north bound, I rarely get to snap images of bus chassis as they are always moving, anyone have idea's what it is?

Remember the good old days when they would strap a kitchen chair to the chassis, and drive it to the body builder.

It appears to be a Hino, possibly an RN8J school bus chassis.
need red GA:516, 517, 520, 521, 654 to 655, 662, 665, 668, 672, 676, 831.

You'de certainly have all round good visibility. It would have been good to have strapped an old phone booth around the driver!!

I remember when at John A Gilbert's back in the '70's following in a car while one of the sales staff delivered Bedford chassis as described. A chair as boronia described while the driver doing a very good 'Snoopy' impersonation with goggles, scarf, pilots hat and bomber jacket - would have looked at home in a Tiger Moth biplane. A few chassis I recall were delivered that way to Glenorie's depot and others.

They were still being delivered to body builders in early 1990's as Toronto bought a few old STA leopards stripped them in their yard and had them driven to PMC in Sydney for new 160 bodies.
