For nearly a century – Leyland was one of the most common brands to be found on New Zealand’s roads. It reflected our strong dependence on ‘mother’-Britain, and its dominance was made easier by stiff import regulations that favoured Commenwealth products.

However, once those restrictions were lifted, Leyland struggled against its American and European competitors and was eventually swallowed by PACCAR, and the famous badge disappeared for good in the early 2000s.
