The Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramways Board - The Met built up quite a reasonable fleet of dual door 10.9 metre Leyland Nationals in the seventies. Australian Nationals were not the 10.3 metre or 11.3 metre UK versions, but 10.9m. This was achieved by using the front end of an 11.3m model and the back end of a 10.3m version, thus ensuring the bus did not exceed the Australian limit of 11m at the time This appears to be MET 808 (IAC 808).

"In Australia, ACTION purchased 70 Nationals in 1974–75, 16 being fully assembled in England and 54 in Australia. Some were repowered with MAN engines. In 1975, Brisbane City Council purchased seven while the Melbourne & Metropolitan Tramways Board purchased 30. The Metropolitan Transport Trust purchased 63 in 1975–76 for use in Hobart. These were all 10.3 metre units, however one was rejected and its replacement was a 10.9 metre unit. Surfside Buslines were the largest Australian private bus operator with a fleet of 38 purchased new and second-hand." from wiki.

So 1975 Mk1. Made in Aus??
