Perth TAA buses from the 1960s.

Post by Denv12 »

I would like to find photos of other TAA buses from Perth from the late 1950s and into the 1960s.I have 1 photo as an example of a former Perth TAA bus.It is a Super White bodied by MBA.Then photographed by my Late father,Jack Sellick when this vehicle became part of the "Sellick's Coaches" fleet around 1965.

The vehicle was driven from Perth to Adelaide.It arrived on a Friday night and on the saturday morning it went to a local spray painters at Alberton in Adelaide western suburbs behind the MTT bus depot.This bus was then painted in its livery of white,silver and pink.The bus was sold to Harris Coaches of Gawler.It was still owned by them as late as 1999 still in its original livery as per this photo with the only alteration being the name Sellick removed and the name Harris signwritten in its place,as well as the appropriate details on the lower right hand side as required.

If anyone has photos of airline bus photos from Perth please add them here.

Thanks system improver.
Great photo.
They must have painted them into the 1/2 white 1/2 blue livery at some point.The one in my photo was blue and white like that when it was delivered to us mid 1960s.It was then repainted in the livery my dad came up with as in my photo.
