Rintoule's Of Nhill,Victoria.

Postby Denv12 » Tue Jan 24, 2017 5:39 pm

Back in the late 1970s onwards my dad,the late Jack G Sellick (bus dealer,"Sellick Of Adelaide") sold a few buses to Arthur Rintoule in Nhill,Victoria.I think Rintoule's operated school runs,charter and tours from their business near the Shell Roadhouse at the time. I cant remember what all his fleet consisted of but I do know he had 1 ex Adelaide STA Adelaide built Denning and a Freighter Lawton Bedford also ex STA. At that time he drove an Ford Fairmont XA sedan.It used to be mine. If anyone has other photos of the fleet and any relevant info please add them to this post.Thanks.

I just found an old post of mine regarding Adelaide Denning's an updated it:

Denv12,
I believe that the first pic, the Panther with Denning body, may have originally been with Slattery's of Payneham South, as their number 21.

Paul

I think you're right.I'm sure I saw it in their fleet.There was a few others bought from STA around the same time.

Denv12,

The wo photos that you have added are of ex STA 8417 (Leyland Leopard ex Transway / Elizabeth Passenger Service) in the silver and the same ex Slattery unit.

I know that there is a photo of the bus in Slattery livery in the Leon Batman Collection.

Regards,
Paul.

Thanks Paul.

Those Adelaide Denning's,there must have been quite a few built.I remember going past the factory and seeing the various models being built. I added another photo.This one parked outside the office at the time.They were building the MTT/STA buses and these bus models.Did they build any single axle Mono coach models? I'm tempted to devote a post specifically for Adelaide Dennings to see what others can add.

Thank you for adding further information and links. Those buses looked modern as they were.The chassis must have been worth keeping.The Custom Coach rebody looks good.

What was this model name for those bus models? Were there any built in their Brisbane factory?
