The model - ABC's third version is in the guise of SF2, carrying standard China Motor Bus (CMB) livery. It represents the prototype soon after delivery, with the white on red registration number, this colour scheme being for public vehicles, mounted on the front bumper. After 1983, the UK style of reflective plates was used. The model features poseable wheels with opening side and rear engine covers. Wing mirrors are provided for the owner to fit.

The bus - in 1978 China Motor Bus announced that the final 30 chassis of an order of 70 Long Fleetlines had been changed to 31ft vehicles. Alexander bodies similar to those fitted to the LF class were used, the most recognisable difference being the SF had a half width rearmost nearside window whilst the LF had a full width. This would allow them to be used on routes 15 to The Peak and 6 to Stanley, where road conditions required shorter vehicles. SF2 entered service in November 1979.
