Cool just think if it sells the buyer could have them deliver it to the Rally Sept 6th thru the 10th @ BK's, Cats, & Dallas' Place in NW TN an everybody could help the new owner inspect it! LOL!

I don't know who is the owner or the seller is but I can tell it never was a Greyhound PD4104.  Grin
So it might be a good old 4104 for the bucks. Huh

It's a good guess, considering how few of the 1954's went to Greyhound. Most of the 1953's did, but the next huge order wasn't until 1957. But Greyhound did get a few 1954's, so I'm not sure how he can be positive.

1.All Greyhounds had a solid panel between the headlights.
2. Greyhounds had a specific A/C setup which was only used on coaches delivered to them.

From what I remember, the PD 4104s released by Greyhound in the early 1970s were pretty good buses.  Greyhound Maintenance back then was far superior to today's.  Many small charter companies got their start with Greyhound 4104s.

My wife's gonna kill me, but I put a bid on it.  Pretty good bid I thought, but I still didn't meet the reserve.

I have nowhere to put it,
no money to put into it
no reason to buy it except...

I JUST GOTS TO HAVE IT (or at least one like it)...

How can you tell a Greyhound PD4104 from a regular PD4104?
Greyhound 04's had a solid panel between the front headlights no single license plate holder.
Most had the low mount mirror on the left side.
Different location for the condenser door screen and a small screen behind it for the A/C diesel engine radiator.
Different windshield wiper arm system like the coaches have today not the single arm Tryco type.
Transmission door will have cooling louvers.
Engine compartment door is different no rear target sign on the Greyhound 04's
Lot's of other small things like the switch locations on the drivers instrument panel are different on the Greyhound 04's.

JLV,

Corrections,

1.the louvered Tranny door is a sign of the Hydrashift Tranny
2.Some greyhounds did have target signs  Dog with greyhound Lines lettering on white ( photo evidence)

Greyhound tailgates all had the tail and brake lights on the upper panel as per Greyhound specs.

Non Patograph wipers were delivered on some greyhound 04's ( phot eveidence) if not all.  I thought the patograph was a retrofit on the 04

My '54 was a Trailways.

It has Transmission door with cooling louvers, no Hydrashift.

Engine compartment door has rear target sign and all lights. I've never seen a 4104 with the lights in the bumper before, I thought that was a custom modification when I saw the photo.

Of course these doors could have been changed but mine has all the other stuff different than Greyhound that has been posted.

This is a nice looking bus but he says nothing about the mechanical or tire condition. If all is well mechanically this is a $15-20K bus.

40 gal fresh is only about half what it should be, same thing for the waste tank/s.

I especially like the interior because it isn't all light colored woodwork like all the new S&S!!

 I think this bus was at the last Arcadia rally. Gary LaBombard should have pictures of it in his albums.

You really think so, gus?

I was thinking more like $7 - $10...Am I being too unrealistic?
