WORLDWIDE interest in Duple's unique pusher-bus project — exclusively illustrated and described in CM, May 10 — is growing according to Mr John McHugh, the group's engineering director. He told CM this week that a meeting was currently being arranged with a major international group (not International Harvester) which already had interests in bus, truck, car and engine production. As a direct result of the CM story, inquiries have also been received from at least two other sources. The meeting with the group might result in a full-size prototype of the pusher-bus — a modular concept which involved separating passengers from power pack. At present plans are going ahead to build a lightweight prototype. Both could be ready by the end of the year.
