The Leyland-DAB Lion was a mid-engined double-decker bus chassis manufactured by Leyland between 1986 and 1988.

History[edit]

The Leyland-DAB Lion was designed as a mid-engined double-decker bus chassis based on a Danish Automobile Building design.[1][2] Only 32 were built for Clydeside Scottish, Eastern Scottish and Nottingham City Transport.[3][4][5]

Following the takeover of Leyland by Volvo, the Lion ceased production in 1988.[6]
