Mike,

Yours is a brother/sister bus to mine @MK&O.  Mine is #333, so it was probably in the same group they purchased that year.  I can still make out that it was #731 on the entrance door.

Curious as to where you found that info.

From a binder I keep next to my desk, which I've had for probably 20 years or more.

It's a copy of a list of every GMC Parlor Car delivered from the early PG-2501s right up until the very last 4905s.  The list was compiled originally by members of the Motor Bus Society, IIRC.

FWIW & HTH. . .

Thank you for that info, the bus still has 508 on the door. The previous owner has passed and the family does not seem to know much about it.

Mike -

P8M4905A-310 was delivered new in March of 1973 as fleet number O-508 to Oklahoma Transportation Company, HQ'd in Oklahoma City, OK.  More than likely, it remained in their fleet for at least 10-15, maybe 20 years before being sold off to a secondary carrier or private owner.

I have no other ownership information, you'll have to sleuth backwards from the previous owner.

Scott the switch to the far left of the one you mentioned  should be the on off switch. It is on mine.



The one that says fast idle on mine is actually the on off switch. A few of my switches have been replaced and the label does not agree with the function, but the location of the switch agrees with da book.

Funny, or not so funny, mistake with sparks just yesterday... I was cutting 1 3/4" and 1 1/4" tubing both .12" thick to do some fabricating for the bus. A lot of sparks flying for about an hour and I didn't even notice that two of them stuck to my glasses; they melted two little pits into the lens that are now two small permanent black spots in my field of vision. Those darn sparks. I should have been wearing a different set of safety glasses so it is my fault. Live and learn.

I am excited for you Scott, it is great to see you starting on the new bus. Can't wait to see what you end up coming up with!

I have two panels. The one in front of my left armrest has the "set/coast and "resume accelerate" switch. But is there a switch somewhere to turn cruise "on"? I have switches on the dash but the labeling has worn off or the switch punched through. Can anyone take a high res photo of their 102 or 102C3 dash so I can see what switch is where? This would be hugely helpful. Thank you so much guys.

Scott
