One of MY favourite coaches was the O302 Mercedes Benz. LOVED them with bodywork by
Denning, but they looked OK with similar PMC bodies. Below is a selection of O302s that
operated in Tasmania over the years. ALL photographs © Bruce Tilley

They might have looked nice, but they were horrid to drive :twisted:

Have these photos been deleted? I can't seem to access them. I'm trying to find the history of a Mercedes O302 for sale in Victoria that apparently has the name 'Tasmanian Princess' faintly visible under subsequent coats of paint.

Unfortunately, all my photos I had stored on Photobucket have disappeared. :(
