History: First MAN bus in New Zealand. Owned by MAN (NZ) Ltd and in the care of the Omnibus Society. The bus was repainted and shown at the 2006 Bus and Coach Association Conference. It has had very little use since, as the starter motor is non-servicable and needs replacement. A suitable replacement has not yet been found, so if you can help please contact the society.
