Converted to Chevrolet 6cyl petrol & 4sp Chevrolet synchromesh gearbox by Kalamunda BS (which accounts for why most sources have incorrectly recorded this Thornycroft as a Chevrolet)
When modified, the Thornycroft bonnet, radiator & grille were retained; due to the smaller Chevrolet engine, a second radiator was fitted approx 45cm behind the Thornycroft radiator
Nicknamed `The Matchbox`
De-registered prior to MTT takeover
Not operated by the MTT
