Uppsala Jonckheere

Only five of the original 15 remained when i started to discover Uppsala in 1995. My brother also got some images of the lower numbers in spring 1995, so we must credit him for that effort. The latter pictures from 1996-97 are mine. The bodywork from Jonckheere was one of two alternatives for the early Scania 112 articulated buses. For some reason Scania did not adjust their own body to fit the articulated chassis that was marketed in 1979. Finish Ajokki or Belgian Jonckheere bodies were the options offered. It was only in 1985 or so, that Scania presented their in-house body. That became identical to the twoaxcled bus, built since 1978, and slightly changed in 1985.
