The model - this release was commissioned by the Hong Kong Transport Society, and represents LV1. Unlike previous HKTS releases, this model is not expected to go on general sale in the UK.

The bus - still not totally happy with its rear-engined buses, China Motor Bus took delivery of 167 front-engined Leyland Victory Mk2s between 1979 and 1982. These featured Alexander 'CB' bodywork with seating in a 3+2 layout, with the exception of the final batch of 20, which were fitted with Metsec bodies.
