This 1:76 scale model depicts unit 1224, the last delivery in 1973 of the 224 Public Transport Commission Leyland Atlantean double deck two axle buses.

They were designed for one-man (driver only). The chassis were built in England by British Leyland, and all were bodied locally by Pressed Metal Corporation of Revesby. A Leyland 680 6-cylinder diesel engine developing 150 B.H.P. at 2000 RPM was mounted transversely across the rear.

This Leyland Atlantean PDR1A/1 model is a museum grade replica. Like all OZBUS models, every detail is modelled to perfection and with razor sharp precision. The replica features the livery and decals of the era including layout configuration and graphics, leaving no detail overlooked. The model comes in a plastic display box with an outer cardboard box with details about the model. The stainless steel etched plate features a mini version of the bus, the Leyland logo and limited edition model number. This replica is a treasure to be displayed and admired and is in no way a toy.


This is not a toy and not suitable for children under the age of 14. This highly detailed scale model contains small, intricate pieces that may present a choking hazard.
