That K93 looks HEAPS better in that old Lever's Livery than the current Dean's Livery it has, however if they put it in the new dean's livery it might look good

The K93 could be a candidate for preservation of a private in the ACT. Nice photos, good to see some Lever photos around!

IIRC the CCC Merc was a Mannhein body job, and went to Murrays when he bought the company.

Love the Eagle 15. Polished auminium side panels certainly dress the coach up, with the chrome wheels :D

The Levers 302 was new to Quodling brothers Queanbeyan. Levers bought Quodlings out and the 302 came with the sale. The 302 originally only had jetair and was later fitted with airconditioning and painted in the old AAT colours during the period Levers operated the Canberra day tours under the AAT banner. Would love to know where it ended up!!

Great photo of the Silver Eagles there eaglemarko5. By the look of the photo it may have been a fleet line up shot. If so, do you have the full photo that you could put up please?
