The first Flxible Clipper (of two I believe) imported into Australia by Reginald Ansett was AR24 in 1947. Distinguised from the local built units
by the extra windows it has been lovingly restored and maintained by a few owners and now resides in Katoomba,
accredited to Golden West Holdings. Appropriate personalised rego plate 'Anset' . It carries the name 'Yooralla'.
As noted on the back of the vehicle, it's the only Americam Flxible Clipper bus licensed to carry 29 passengers in Australia.

I have a photo in my collection that I took in the mid 1970's of this unit derelict in Turnbulls yard at Mt Gambier, so
it's been a pleasure seeing this vehicle driven around the Mountains and to step inside. Seen here at Mt Victoria earlier this year.
