Yepo, Bus 971 was delivered in that livery back in 1992.

Yes, and to add to what Bus 400 said above, 963 and 967 also share this livery.

To be a nit-picker, 992 (and all the Renault PR100.3s) have Austral Denning "Starliner" bodies.

WRONG. They have "Metroliner" bodies. The Starliner was a completely different design and were mainly school buses.

The Metroliner bodies are also an entirely different design. The body plate on these buses show it as "Austral Starliner" which is the evidence I rely on.

I am aware that the Starliner is predominently School and Coach bodies, but that doesn't mean that there weren't commuter bodies made which use the Starliner name.
