Kelly Tarlton’s iconic shark bus is for sale on Trade Me – and if you’re keen to snap up a bargain the bidding starts at $11,000.
The eclectic 2005 Toyota Coaster has 21 seats, a five-speed manual gearbox, an “unknown” battery condition – and of course it’s made to look like a shark is eating it.
According to the listing, purchasing the bus would be a “jaw-some opportunity to sink your teeth into”.
The pun is the only mention of the bus’s unusual exterior throughout the listing – and it seems people are champing at the bit for it.
More than 600 people have added the aquatic-themed bus to their watch list, and there are already 17 bids.
It’s expected to sell for about $15,000 – but the new owner will also be looking at around an extra $9000 to get it up to scratch, as the shark bus does not have a Certificate of Fitness.
Despite it’s dinged up exterior and heavy mileage (it’s done more than 378821km) the bidding has already reached $13,756 – so if you’re keen to grab a piece of Auckland history, you’d better be quick.
