Does it have two destination signs Jamie :?: If so, possibly ex MTT. If single roller it coud have been one of a few privateers. Any chance of a photo :?:

It would have been new late 1965/early 1966. It is neither and ex Education Department bus nor an ex Defence Forces bus (like in the photo I posted). So, it went to a private operator. The livery does remind me a bit of Willunga Charter, but I can't place the bus since the list that I have is incomplete, based on observations rather than official records. But it looks good to preserve. Does it still have seats?
