AEC 2775

Hi everyone, It's been a long time since I posted here. In April this year, I acquired ex DGT AEC Regal 4 2775 for preservation and restoration as a bus. I am interested in finding photos of it during its government days, though it seems to have been a bit camera shy. If anyone has photos of during ...

Re: Sydney memories: another visit to W

Boronia What a great collection of photos. I've never seen a bus with a tram style desto box before. Did any others have them or was this just a one off? Any western suburb photos to come? Duncan Yes. AEC Regal IV's 2775, 3238, 3262, 3265 & 3266 were fitted with these tramway style desto boxes. Hi ...

Re: Leyland Leopard

Gday Ben, I bought my blue leopard for $1600 but incomplete, still runs but not road worthy. I am currently doing work on it so I can get it moved and to restore it back to How it was at Burwood. I do know of a couple around Sydney but unsure if they are or would be for sale. I do know of another o...

Leyland Leopard

Hi everyone,
I'm in the Sydney area. I am wondering how much second hand Leyland Leopards sell for roughly? Are there any for sale at the moment around Sydney that are complete?

Re: Eastwood History

One ever so slight problem. Epping Road is just as bad before Wicks Road. North Ryde has fallen victim to saturated development without commensurate upgrades to road infrastructure. The Epping Road flyover was built in 1978 FFS. It was constructed in anticipation of the County Road joining up from ...

Re: Leopard 1607 found in Harden

I did my leopard test in 1607 out of Brookvale depot in 1987. My driving instructor picked this one out purposely because of its superior mechanical condition. I also remember seeing this bus beside a house as I drove through Harden many times about 5 years ago and then the house was demolished and...

Re: Leopard 1607 found in Harden

How much would a bus in 1607's condition cost? I have heard of Leopard's being bought for around $2000.
