PMC Adelaide Takeover from Freighter Lawtons.

Postby Denv12 » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:07 am

I remember back in 1974 and 1975 whilst at Royal Park High School we would see the PMC factory from the school yard.There was always something going on outside. Did the factory continue building the Freighter Lawton buses and coaches of the time of the takeover but rebadged as PMC Adelaide? For example,the Ford TAA buses.They would have been built by Freighter Lawtons at the Seaton factory and then at the PMC factory.That would have been for the local Adelaide city to airport services but interstate airport buses were built by local builders.So,I'm trying to find some information and history at the time of before,during and after the takeover. You're welcome to post documents,photos,etc.Thanks.
