On my 1960 4104 it was stamped on the vertical part of the structure in the "drivers" compartment below the driver's seat.

Dave,

What city and state do you live in?

Also where did you buy your 4104.

My name is Jon and I am putting together a list of surviving 4104's in the world.

Dave -

PD4104-746 was delivered new in January of 1954 as fleet number K-1869 to Pacific Greyhound Lines, HQ'd in San Francisco, CA.  Obviously a West Coast bus, which is a plus.  Greyhound most likely sold it to it's second owner after the summer peak season in the fall of either 1964 or 1965.

Since it was based out of SF, it was also maintained by one of (at the time) 'Hound's best service shops nationwide. 

So, now you can truthfully tell folk that you own a "jen-you-wine retired Greyhound bus" when people ask - and they will!

FWIW & HTH. . .

I started in this madness 17 months ago. If you Google "this old bus" you'll find my blog. Started by gutting it all including wiring, the floor and starting fresh. May be some nuggets that would help you along the way. Good luck!  It sounds like you've got some extra hands to help.
