Current bid is $100 plus postage.

Can anyone confirm which model bus/es this would have been fitted in? I think it would be the MAN SL200/SG192s?

Barry Drive

"Higgins Interchange" helps date it as pre-1979 (possibly as early as 1976). That roll would have appeared in all buses at the time it was made: Leyland National, Volvo B58, AEC Swift and early MAN SL200s.  Not sure about the SG192s and later SL200s.

Bus 400

I was bidding on this item & like the last one I battled it out for, a higher bid was placed seconds before the auction ended. Ruling me out, but hey people are willing to pay close to $300 for an old destination roll so collectors win somewhere.
