History

The lowbridge doubler decker AEC Bridgemaster was nearing the end of its production when AEC launched the Renown as its successor around 1962. Production examples were bodied by Park Royal. The design, like the Bristol Lodekka and the Dennis Loline meant this double-decker could travel under low height bridges, whilst maintaining near-full-height standing room.
