For seventy years, Duple were one of the two best known names in coachbuilding in Britain. Formed in Hornsey, London in 1919 before moving north to Blackpool, Duple grew to be one of the most popular suppliers of luxury coach bodies for the UK market. Decline in new vehicle sales in the late 1980s saw Duple’s fortunes start to fade and the company closed its doors for the final time in 1989.
Covering the period from 1960 to the end of production, this book gives an overview of many of the buses and coaches within the Duple range. With a brief description of each body type and 180 photographs, most in colour and all with informative captions, it showcases Duple’s finest products in their operating heyday.
