UNTIL the 1984 12m Bedford reaches the market, Bedford customers can buy stretched YNTs with air suspension at the rear, as part of a package from Chassis Developments, of Dunstable.
Go Whittle, the Highley, Shropshire independent, is the first customer for a Wright Contour-bodied YNT to this standard, the vehicle developed last year in conjunction with Bedford stylists and built using the Alusuisse aluminium construction method.
The coach has full soft-interior trim and 46 Diplomat reclining seats and a rear-mounted toilet. It was supplied by Vincent Greenhous of Hereford.
The Contour body is now in full production at the Ballymena plant of Robert Wright and Son. Initial production vehicles are all on YNT chassis although a highfloor version on Leyland Tiger chassis is expected to follow. The production vehicle has an improved and simplified power door arrangement and more soft trim around the instrument binnacle.
