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.

Siberyd

I just stopped by there tonight after work and the both of them were gone. Sorry! I wish I could have talked to them for you. I didn't even get the chance to look at the plates on them for you. The first bus I posted was from Arizona, but I didn't get a plate number. The green bus I posted yesterday had a extension on the rear engine doors almost identical to the Arizona bus.
Maybe someone here knows who owns them?

PD4501-771 "All 43 seats.....still a bus !"

This is interesting that there appears to be half as many (so far discovered) 4104s in the "still a bus catagory" as 4501 Scenicruisers. (I know of about 20 seated 4501s in various conditions) Yet they produced 6 times as many 04s, and they manufactured 04s four years later than the 4501. I guess I'm glad I bought my seated 04 when I had the chance. Makes one wonder about other seated models that remain. 4106, 4107 etc. All dinosaurs really I guess.

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

Very few.

Hydrashift is a two speed clutch, the trans is the same.

I think it amounted to about six speeds since some of them overlapped or maybe it wasn't used on all gears - don't hold me to this though!

Re: Hydrashifts,

Hard Headed Ken probably knows how many speeds, etc... he had one of the Hydrashifts in his '04 back in the day. I wish I could find one, though I've heard that there may have been some problems because of the "wet" clutch... slippage starting out on steep inclines maybe?

I would also be interested in one of those 2-speed rears that one gentleman created. Wish I could do something like that! Not nearly brilliant enough. Angry

Lowtide,

Thanks for the VIN, the more the merrier.

Leroy,

Been asking folks if they have a hydrashift trans, no positive results yet,  but I keep trying. 

Us busnuts were an odd lot, many folks give just enough info and then seem to forget my email address.

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.

I just ran into this bus again today, there was nobody in or around it. I did happen to get the plates and a number on the rear for you. The number on the rear of the bus is 112416 and it has California plates with a personalized plate# 58 GMC
Hope this helps!

Gary,

Many thanks for your detective work. I will follow up the numbers and plate off the bus and see what info comes back to me.

I raise my glass to toast the best looking bus ever built - the GM PD-4104.

Ours (Tubby) is a 1959, number 4139 (anyone else notice in the tool compartment, that they used a letter "I" instead of a 1?). Fully converted,,, well it's useable if not finished.

It was delivered new to Trailways in Oklahoma City.
