Author Topic: Looking For Information on Southern Coach Mfg.  (Read 1616 times)

Hey All!
In my meanderings around eBay I happened on a maintenance manual and a parts manual for a bus manufactured by Southern Coach Manufacturing Company of Evergreen, Albama.

The manuals didn't go for a very high price so I bid on them and won.

Now that I have them, I wonder if anyone knows anything about this company.

The model covered is as follows:

Model: S-36-M
Engine: Waukesha 140GKB
Transmission: Spicer 6252
Wheel Base: 196"
Overall Length: 356 1/2"
Width: 95 3/4"
Overall Height: 116"
Turning Radius: 34' 3"

This is probably just some more stuff I collect to clutter my bus up with!

Thanks,
Dallas

Thanks, Nick,

I checked them out before I posted and found that they are a charter/tour company.

The Southern Coach I've been looking for was actually the manufacturer of this bus.

I wonder if JL Vickers or RJ Long would know anything about them.

very small company, went the way of the DODO in the early 50's I beleive.

Very regional as far as sales went.

Doubt there are too many still on rubber let alone running.

That is a very cool link except that now I really need a thousand dollars worth of books.

Thanks Doug!
That was what I was looking for.

I would like to find out just what year these manuals are for, since there is no copyright date or dates of any kind in them.

One interesting lead is that the engine, being a Waukesha, points to it being one of the first.

Thanks again,
Dallas
