Due to family circumstances beyond the control of the owner, he sadly has to let her go.

I just hope 670 does not become a motor-home as it would be tragic with the all the work gone into it.

I am now happy to say that 670 will NOT become a motor home as TAA727 has just purchased her and is fully intending to carry on the restoration of the bus. Albeit in Sydney, not Canberra.

MAN SL-202 Ex-STA 3291
Merc O.305 MkII Ex-STA 2496
Merc O.305 Ex-Action 670

Glad to hear it as I didn`t want to see all that restoration work go down the drain on 670 as there ain`t very many ex ACTION 0305s preserved and to see some updated reports on 670.
