Plaxton: The Paramount Years
- Howard Berry
15th August 2024
In 1983, Plaxton of Scarborough addressed the threat to their market dominance from continental coachbuilders with the Paramount, a range of luxury coach bodies which included the first purpose-built British double-deck coach body. Over its lifespan, the Paramount could be seen the length and breadth of the UK in fleets big and small and in sizes big and small.
The story of these icons of British coachbuilding is told through 180 colour photographs, all taken during their operating heyday and accompanied by informative and sometimes humorous captions.
