The model

The bus - With a shortage of vehicles, KMB took delivery of 100 standard UK Seddon Pennine 4s between 1970-1972. The only modification was the fitting of sliding side windows. The lack of front opening windows proved unpopular and by 1975 new 'front-ends' were being fitted. Many received other modifications, which are superbly illustrated in Mike Davis excellent book 'Hong Kong Buses - Volume 2 - Kowloon Motor Bus', from which the aforementioned has been extracted. Published by DTS Publishing.
