The model - a reissue of 40407, but bearing a different registration number, this model was released in September 1998 to celebrate KMB's 65th anniversary. It comes without a limited edition certificate.

The bus - 4202 was new to KMB in April 1954. The model features the vehicle in its original condition, as sliding gates were subsequently fitted to the rear platform, and by 1955, front entrances were being fitted. The vehicle was withdrawn in November 1973.
