Ford TSV Coaches

Tasman Special Vehicles in Cambridge built 11 buses based on Ford Chassis in the early 1980's. The chassis are Ford R1114 rails imported from England and then TSV fitted axles, suspension and motors either mid mounted or front mounted depending on the order. Most of the chassis built had mid mounted Isuzu 6BD1 motors fitted, but the Shaws had a front mounted motor.

The buses on this site are actively tracked. The last registration record search was 1 January 2010
