PD4104-1274, modest conversion is running and parked in Ash Flat, AR because I bought a 4107 with AT and Sheppard PS.

It is for sale but needs a front main seal to be seriously used on the road.

I just spotted this one in Alaska down on the Kenai. It has Arizona plates and belongs to Don & Marlene. I didn't get the chance to talk to them, but it is headed down to my neck of the woods, maybe I'll get the chance later.
It is very dirty and looks like he just came up the Alcan highway.

From the looks of the engine door he has installed a larger engine and probably an AT.

Congrats.....you have already found more 04s than I have found 4501s in 15 years. Only know of about 230 Scenicruisers in various conditions (around 20 are still seated coaches in various states of repair). I guess that is to be expected since they made 6 times as many 04s !

Keep up the good work. Do you plan to upload your info to the net somewhere eventually? I am slowly doing an electronic version of mine at:                             [url][www.tomsgarageonline.com/url]

Take care

If you know of the whereabouts of a PD4501 Scenicruiser - I would like to add the serial number to my registry of surviving Scenics.  www.tomsgarageonline.com

Tom,

Thanks for the compliment. Fortunately for me, people are seeing my postings around the web at atleast 2 a week
and sending their VINs.

A bus related website owner has offered my project a permanent home, for anyone to access.

PM me and I will tell you where.

There are 4 PD 4104's out there that are still operable seated coaches. Owners/locations are as follows:

Museum of St. Louis painted with a Continental Trailways livery.

Cantos Collection, Fontana, Ca - Painted for Greyhound Lines #7658 (movie bus?).

Bus stored in Williams, Ca - painted as Greyhound Lines #7103, put into storage after being filmed for a movie in 2007.

Brazil - Turismo Santa Rita #22 {may be you-tube video shinny bus}.

If anyone knows how to get VIN's for these buses, would love the help. Emails to
St. Louis and Cantos Collections (found an email address online under movie buses) have resulted in crickets.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Is this one you already have on your list? It was 6:00am when I drove by it, so I didn't ask. There are two of them at the same campground here on the Homer Spit Ak. If I can find the time, I'll as the owners of both of them.

Seayfam,

Pretty bus, don't know if I got it. Think you could go and visit for me and get:
VIN
Name
Home city and state.

You bet, I'll go by there tomorrow after work and see if they are still there. It is a very nice looking bus from all sides. The other 4104 at the campground is the one I posted a picture of a month ago. I'll see if he is still there also. They were both there this morning, but it is raining really hard and only 49f out, they may just pack up and bail. I sure feel like it.

Wow,

Talk about cool and pleasent weather. Today was 107f, and our local arsonist only started 2 wildfires in the forest. They stopped the fires quick. We have a great set of forestry folk.

Tomorrow should be the same with dry lightning to boot.
