Bernard Van Hool, a Dutchman who was already into coachbuilding got into an agreement with FIAT to sell their bus models in the sixties. After some time, he agreed to use FIAT made engines and parts for his coaches. After seeing this model's acceptance, he decided to establish a new brand called Van Hool FIAT. One of the models, he rolled out, was this bus 306.
The engine used for this new model had a FIAT made 6-cylinder, 10.7 litre diesel engine with a power output of 140 hp. With FIAT made transmission and gear box, this bus model had a length span of 12 metres. As it’s popularity soared within Netherlands, Van Hool decided to offer an extended roof fitting glass on it’s sides that allowed more light to come in, as well as offer a better view. This new bus model called Vistadome sold in large numbers across Europe.
