The Mancunian double-decker bus is a type of bodywork for double-decker bus designed by Manchester Corporation Transport Department and built on Leyland Atlantean and Daimler Fleetline chassis. Four hundred and seventy two Mancunians were ordered by the Department between 1965 and 1968 and delivered from 1968 until 1972. The first 96 buses ordered (48 each from Leyland and Daimler) used a 30-foot (9.1 m) chassis, but the majority were 33 feet (10 m) long.
