History: Sold by NZRRS on 29 Nov 1957. Used as a Movan. Peter Berry bought the bus late 1980s. Had not run
for 2 years. Hand painted (blue with white bumper), new tyres and battery and it went. Driven from Christchurch to
Dannevirke, with the only problem being a fuel blockage at Kaikoura. Donated to Toitu Otago Settlers Museum to be
restored to suit their art deco former NZRRS depot. Moved to Ferrymead for assesment in 2011, but has not had any attention
since and is parked up outside.
