Scrapyard bus completely unrecognisable

Windows smashed, stripped for parts.... sad sight this bus at a scrapyard. Can anyone recognise the chassis / bodywork?

This bus certainly looks as if it is carrying the remains of a Willowbrook Warrior bus body, which was often a type fitted to older bus chassis, replacing the original body, to extend their lives.

It's a Leyland Lynx

looking at the towing eyes i would say it a rebodied tiger and if you look at the dash i would say thats a tiger also

Looks like a Willowbrook Warrior bus body usually built on an older chassis, such as Leyland Leopard

It,s a Leyland Lynx mk2.

It is most certainly a Willowbrook Warrior, rather than a Lynx. Although the two are very similar, the front dash arrangement and the windscreen are noticeably different.

This is a Willowbrook Warrior body which (as mentioned above) was designed as a low cost option for re-bodying older chassis particularly Leopards and Tigers. An instantly recognisable distinguishing feature is that the front windows on this vehicle are flush whereas on a Lynx the drivers cab section has a raked back screen. Also a Lynx is generally longer and looks low slung and also has side mouldings along the bodyside which incorporate flat top wheel arches. A Lynx Mk2 would have the extra snub nose to it's front. The bus in this picture is a Willowbrook Warrior on either a Leopard or a Tiger.

definately a warrior. judging by the rake of the steering wheel, almost horizontal. I would say it is a Leopard rather than a Tiger. The tiger wheel being more rake towards the driver.

I am with the Warrier brigade here....not very successful attempt to extend the life of old Leopards...I drove one for a while 'rattletraps'

It's not a Lynx or Lynx 2, both had a drop backed drivers windscreen and a Mk2 blown out front end so It's a Warrior re-body... Could be Leopard or a Tiger Chassis...
