Looking for a farebox? They pop up on ebay from time to time. Also check with a local transit agency and see  what they have in their boneyard. You want a GFI, General Farebox Inc or a Johnson farebox. GFI bought Johnson out years ago and still has some parts.

The original fareboxes were as simple as  coin or token into inspection window and pushed down into locking safe. The Johnson has a mechanism that counts: quarters, dimes, nickles and pennies. Even had a side slot for dollars or 50 cent pcs.

I used to repair them in the past as well as empty the safes from the buses and count the cash and coin.
