AEC brought out the lowheight Renown chassis as a replacement for the poor selling Bridgemaster in 1963. AEC built two pre-production examples in 1962 as demonstrators. One of these was 8071ML with front entrance Park Royal body; when new this bus spent several months on loan to the country area of London Transport. Alongside is Stockport Corporation 71, KJA871F, a 1968 Leyland Titan PD3/14 with East Lancs bodywork carrying GMT livery and fleet number 5871.
Both buses are now preserved, the Titan at the Manchester Transport Museum while the AEC was last heard of in The Netherlands
