Lord Auckland...

Postby cordes_express » Wed Nov 24, 2010 3:02 pm

Hi there Boys & Girls. Today I had the fortune of finding a bus which was believed to have been converted into a movan. But as you will see is still complete as a coach. This is the Former Newmans Coachlines Mercedes Benz O317 coach #200 Which was named Lord Auckland Its first registration was HW3162 & its current (But Lapsed) Registration is UQ7615.

From what i could see, the only modifications to this coach appear to only be the modification of the rear to a designline version.

Enjoy...
