Bodybuilder Robert Wright & Son unveiled its intercity coach body last week — one of a range of new products it plans outside its midibus work (CM 16-22 January).

The Endeavour is based on Wright's newly developed citybus design. It is available on a range of chassis, retailing at £96,860 on the 12m Dennis Javelin, Belfast-based Ulsterbus has ordered 25 of the 12m Leyland Tiger chassis, with 183kW (245hp) Volvo engines, fourspeed automatic gearboxes and full air suspension. It will take delivery of the 53-seaters within two months.

Wright says the Endeavour is designed for the express, intercity and dual-purpose markets. Although it is not aimed at the touring market, it is possible to fit a toilet and it has fully reclining luxury seats, 6m.' of luggage space at the rear and sides and a kneeling device to help passenger access.

Wright has fitted a threepiece, double curvature windscreen, tinted gasket-glazed windows and a power operated pivot door. The Alusuisse M5438 construction system was used on the Endeavour, A low-floor totally accessible bus from Wright should be complete within the next year.

"We have had plenty of experience with maximum-length buses and coaches in the past," says Wright's commercial director Jeff Wright. "In recent years, however, we have concentrated on midibuses and already we have a substantial market share. The time is now right to extend our production range further and the Intercity coach is the first of a number of new products which we will launch in the near future."
