Yep, best looking bus. Great music out the back, they sound fantastic on 'Haulin the Hume', you tube.
Passengers slipping on the oil leaks would be a PITA though! ;D ;D ;D

The earliest Clippers built here were Leyland powered with a few Cummins JBS600. About 60 of the 131 built here were Deutz powered, F6L614 and F6L714. The leakers were 4-71 repowers later in their time with Pioneer. In more recent times some have been repowered with 4-71 or 6V53 during restoration.

Here's one just listed on Gumtree in NSW. You'd wanna have deep pockets to fund the restoration but it'd be a magic thing to own.

Here are two of mine, copied across from the Events section. I have more up, but I am not finding them.
These are from the Sun.25.11.90 HCVC display at International Harvester, Dandenong.
