If this coach is the one I'm thinking of then it has a volgren body. I photographed it a few years ago when it was still in Adams livery. Will see if I can find it.

It's a Volgren body, new in 1997. First operator in NZ was probably Musson. Has been offered for sale and reportedly sold - http://www.bussalesonline.com.au/vehicle.asp?ID=315 , with photos.

Did many of the C221SX bodies make it over to NZ? When did Volgren NZ cease operating?

Thanks,

There was never a New Zealand Division of Volgren. All vehicles were imported into New Zealand, either second hand or the odd one or two were imported new.

I think some Volgren kits were assembled by Designline?
