The Western Flyer Coach D700A was their first transit bus to be sold in large numbers. The D700 was only produced as prototypes and demonstrators. The D700 and D700A are similar in appearance with only minor differences.

Flyer delivered a D700A prototype to AM General in the United States where they would build the buses under license for the US market. AMG redesigned the D700A, adding larger rectangular windows and a different front end, and sold it as the Metropolitan. Flyer adopted these design changes on its own vehicles in 1974 and called it the D800.
