Leyland Lynx Bus
1984 to 1992
six-cylinde Diesel rear engine
The Leyland Lynx is a bus from the British commercial vehicle manufacturer Leyland Motors . Built from 1984 to 1992.
The Leyland Lynx was supposed to take the place of the Leyland National, which had been in production since 1972. The engine of the bus is positioned in the rear of the 37-51 seat variants, however the radiator is located in the front for improved cooling. The bus could be powered by a variety of six-cylinder diesel engines from Leyland, Gardner, Cummins, and Volvo. Leyland Hydracyclic gearboxes or ZF automatic transmissions were used.
All Lynx were built as a regular bus. The construction of the bus was mostly made by Leyland itself, only seven Lynx for Ulsterbus and city bus got a body of Alexander .
The bodies of Leyland differed in equipment and seating capacity for each operator. The buses for export were usually delivered as a chassis with motor and provided with on-site bodies, so a bus for the Singapore Bus Service received a PS construction of Alexander , two buses for Sydney got a metro90 construction by the Pressed Metal Corporation . Depending on the structure, the capacity was about 53 seats.
Built from 1990 to 1992, the Mk II series can be distinguished from the predecessor model on the larger stem of the radiator grille and headlamp unit.In total, over 1000 buses were produced. After the acquisition of Leyland Buses by Volvo Buses production of Lynx was discontinued in Workington in the early 1990s.
