Bonnici Leyland Leopard

Photo: Graeme Farrar

In 1980 Bonnici Coachlines purchased 10 Leyland Leopard PSU3E/2R coaches with air-conditioned Hawke/Bonicietti Supercruiser C45F bodies for Trans Tours work. These buses continued the Bonnici tradition of acres of polished metal. With take overs and shake ups in the industry these passed as a fleet to Midland Motors and then to H & H Travel Lines. In 1984 seven were operating out of Christchurch (101 to 107) and three out of Auckland (108 to 110).

Car Haulaways (NZ) Ltd

Car Haulaways had two Leopard chassis that were used for car transporters out of their Takanini depot from 1966-71. These were a big step up from the rest of the fleet of Ausitn or Morris forward control trucks. The chassis were greatly modified - especially L40252 which was built as a PSU3/2R coach chassis. The motor registration records show the vehicles belonging to Car Haulaways (NZ) Ltd, Cable Price Corp and Plamerston North motors before passing to the first PSV owner. DB5539 is shown as belonging to Cable Price Corp and passing to Car Haulways ownership only on the day it was resold to Palmerston North Motors. I suspect these two entries have been reversed when earlier records were captured and the vehicles were traded in to Cable Price when replaced. I have omitted the Cable Price and Palmerston North Motors ownership from these records as I only show dealer owners if the vehicle has remained with them for some time. The LTSA records show FQ6986 and HM4303 as the first plates in 1966. I believe these plates were first used when the chassis were registered as buses in 1971.
