Perhaps one of Peter Janson's collection in Melbourne? He had some double deckers and interests in motor racing.

The current (Issue #107) of Australian Muscle Car magazine has a story about the purchase and restoration of the HDT double decker bus. Recovered from a property at Lakes Entrance and after a reported $125,000 spent the bus in now fully restored to and registered as a National Heavt Vehicle (XQ12BE), but still with UK plates 307MFC carried.
