Ordered originally by Stockport Corporation, the chassis was damaged in a fire at East Lancs bodybuilders in 1970. It was salvaged and sent (via Bristol Commercial Vehicles) to Australia where it was bodied by Smithfield as the only new single-deck VR, entering service with Hill, Wollongong in 1972
