Pretty rare one. yep looks the same as a 5A and B other than the eye brow but he probably added that.
I wonder if it is a 6v92 I don't think a 8V would fit would it? even with a manual.
Is it a real Silver or a spray painted one ? nice looking bus

We met a couple at Moose Jaw, SK, Canada, in June, with a MCI 2. It also looked like a MCI 5, and had a DD 6V71 with 4 speed manual transmission. John and Gerri Morrow are the owners. They invited us to see the inside with a nice conversion. It is always fun to meet other bus owners in our travels.

Thanks, Sam

604 area code means it's inside Canada so no importation issues for someone wanting a bus in Canada.

Owner might be in Canada and bus might not be.

8V92 and a ten speed road ranger.  I'll bet that is a blast to drive.

The MC1 replaced the Courier96 about 1960, followed by the MC2, then MC3, then 4. We had them all at Brewster's, except the 4s. IMO and from my fuzzy memory, the Couriers were overbuilt, solid , good buses in their time. But the 1s, 2s and 3s were flimsy, rusty, rattly POSs with loose steering, and  were underpowered. MCI didn't get it right until the MC5 series.

Fraser Valley, British Columbia, just north of Chilliwack.  Absolutely gorgeous country, driven through there a few times.
