LEYLAND'S new export B21 single-deck chassis was on display at the Nice International Coach Show for the first time this week. The low-floor chassis was bodied by Jonckheere.
Already orders for 26 of the new vehicles have been re-, ceived from the Belgian State operator, SNCV, and other evaluation vehicles are to be studied by Australian New Zealand and South Australian, operators.
Leyland says that the B21 has been designed for the export market, where a locally built body is essential. Many of the features of the Leyland National are in the new B21.
It is an open-frame chassii, said to be capable of accepting a wide range of locally built bodies and is easily adaptable to local regulations.
The vehicle on display in Nice has a Leyland 510 engine but other engines may be fitted with later models.
