Volvo B10M / Duple Dominant III C51F
With the slow demise of Leyland, Padbus turned to the Volvo B10M for coach work. The first was this Dominant III which was obtained from dealer stock in 1989 and was finished in a similar livery to Leopard/Willowbrook 176. However, without the 'kick up' at the rear the effect was not as successful. This coach survived long enough to have its original black fleetname replaced with an early version of the red and green style. It was withdrawn in 2005 and is now preserved.
Pirate whitemetal kit.
