Itchy Feet Identification

Postby LocoLes » Mon Jan 16, 2017 9:02 pm

This bus was photographed at Bracknell, Tassie in Feb 2014 but unfortunately the Victorian registration plate is partly obscured. The best I can work out is NMV-298.
Hopefully a reader is able to supply the crucial details of this now retired bus/coach used as a motorhome. :)

I'm only guessing but to me that windscreen certainly gives it an RM Mee body from about the 1970's look, and the grille has a bit of a Freighter look about it.

Yep, mid to late 70s Mee body. I've seen this bus, but can't remember where.
