Oddball Wednesday - East Lancs Hyline

A total of just eight East Lancs Hylines were ever produced
East Lancs were well known for their rebodying work on older coach and double deck chassis. A trend in rebodying older bus declined by the early 1990s, when the Flyte model was one of the only options available to British operators.

With the launch of the new Myllennium range, East Lancs also made a high floor version available for grafting onto the Leyland Tiger and Volvo B10M chassis. Unfortunately, the Hyline was launched during at the end of the trend of rebodying and only received eight orders; six on Leyland Tiger chassis and two on a Volvo B10M.
