The bus - After successful trials with 4 prototype Dennis Jubilants, KMB placed orders for a further 360 examples, these being delivered between May 1979 and May 1982. The first batches carried bodywork by Walter Alexander, whilst the final batch of 150 were bodied by Duple/Metsec, in the form of ckd kits.
