Hi

this could be either Hobart or Lton

Lton had 4 of these as well - 388 - 391. in addition to the 4 earlier single door units 376 - 379 ordered by the LMT.

This bus was still at Mittagong as at 2 days ago. Has been sold on but not yet picked up.

Been a while since I've been on here. Amazed to see one of the ex Tas AEC Regal IV's is still in existence, albeit rather battered. Was starting to anticipate a movement to buy and repatriate it home (which I would have happily contributed to), but then noted it had just been sold! Any further news on what has become of it? Would be sad if after one had finally been traced, to lose it again!

Hi

Since been identified as Launceston 391.

MTT to Campbells Dealer to Pearces in the blue mountains to Ruttys to camper to bush sleepout to garden shed at Mittagong.

It has no control gear in the drivers position whatsoever including no steering wheel, hence it is battered because a forklift was used to move the front to realign for towing in a straighline.

Motor (with a hole in the sump) and gearbox are intact. Interior saloon is in very good order though. No seats etc.
