Vintage Austin Bus

Ausie the vintage Austin bus -

she is a unique part of new zealand history. believed to be the oldest vehicle in nz available for public transport.

all the running gear is original and the coach work has been lovingly restored to a fine standard.

she runs on an original 4 cylinder petrol engine and when i bought her she was handle start only! we now have an electric start so you don't need to be a wrestler to start her! the gearbox is a very original crash box, so you will have to polish up your double de clutch to drive her!
normal four speed box with reverse. pedal layout is triangular (throttle below to help with the d d clutch).

there is no lighting and a bulb type horn so she is only licensed for day travel.

the original wheels were cast with solid tyres but to ease the ride i have front pneumatic tyres and wheels. the originals come with the bus.

all ready to work now or to take pride of place in a transport museum.
