What happened to GBE 373

Collins Street, Melbourne - sometime in the late 50's early 60's
This is a crop of a larger image as part of a historical display at the "Block Arcade" in Melbourne the other day.

Great number plate.  The chap inside is wearing a tie - delivering bread?

Seatbelt installation shots

Fitted the seatbelts yesterday.  It just fits!  The changes inside the vehicle are all easily reversible by removing various bolts.  Underneath a section of steel was welded in to house the 7/16ths UNF threaded nut to secure the stalk of the belt.  This had the added effect of stopping the seat from swaying all about the place, so that was a nice bonus. 
Some what safer now.
