Hi all

I'm looking to purchase an ex Sydney Mk IV or Mk V Mercedes. There was a Mk V on Gumtree earlier this year that was fully preserved, but I wasn't ready to buy. Also, potentially a Canberra O305.

If anyone knows of any good condition ones available please let me know.

Cheers

There aren't many Mercedes MKIV or MKV around that are for sale that I know about, but this one has been listed for a few months now and appears to be in pretty good condition.

There are two buses that I know about still in government posession; Mercedes 0305 MKIV 3055 (Leichhardt Depot FOID) and Mercedes 0405 MKV 3195 (Petersham training facility). These may come on the market one day, but they don't appear to be leaving their current homes anytime soon.

I'm not sure if the Police or STA own it. I had a friend who took a picture of it the other week, and it was still at FOID. It looks like it's a source for parts.

Thanks for that. I've seen the one on Gumtree and spoken with the seller. Looks in great condition, but based on what I know STA sold them for he needs to reduce the price. He's desperate to get rid of it, so hopefully he'll come down in price.

Hi all, I have a mark IV for sale in great mechanical condition, body has small dents and new paint (roller). Engine was overhauled by STA in 2006 and gearbox in 2010 or 2011 by Autoshift in Milperra NSW
