History: In service with Okato Bus Lines this bus was known as Mindy. Its partner Mork EZ4109 Okato Bus Lines #2 is still owned by Okato Bus Lines. Mindy suffered repeated overheating on the delivery trip from Taranaki to Wellington with a replacement radiator en route. Mindy likely requires a head gasket and resetting of the rear springs along with general body work. Currently laid up in Woodville.
