XL

Introduced in 1983 as the Marathon XL, this was the first 102-inch-wide Prevost. Passenger windows are higher and wider than on the Champion which it replaced. The name was simplified later to Prevost XL. Beginning in late 1987, the headlights were channged to halogen and the headlight bezel and lower front grill were changed. The […]

LeMirage

The LeMirage was modified from the Prestige by adding a full-height windshield and eliminating the roof step. The large side windows are the same size and shape as the windshield but are not interchangeable with the windshield because of differences in tinting and glass composition. The 102-inch width was introduced in October, 1983 as the […]

Prestige

Prevost, of Sainte Claire, Quebec, produced the Prestige 1973 through 1981. It is mechanically and structurally identical to the Champion with the notable exception of the 42-inch-high side windows. Information from the Bus World Encyclopedia of Buses - 1988

Champion

Prevost, of Sainte Claire, Quebec, produced the Champion 1967 through 1982. The first Prevost coach to be marketed in the United States, it was a deluxe three-axle coach which is recognized by its stepped roof and 27-inch high slanted-sash windows. Information from the Bus World Encyclopedia of Buses - 1988

Jetliner

Jetliners AN235 and AN240 are intercity coaches for general line haul and airport transfer service. The first 102-inch, U.S.-built Jetliner was exhibited at the UBOA convention in January, 1988. Model numbers beginning with "N" designate Neoplan buses built in West Germany. Model numbers beginning with "AN" designate American Neoplan buses built in the United States. […]

Cityliner

The Cityliner is a high-deck, deluxe intercity bus. The three-axle, 102 inch coach uses a 400 horsepower Detroit Diesel 8V92TA engine wit an Allison HTB748 transmission with electronic control and retarder. The coach was first sold in 1987. The AN116 was supplied with either a center lavatory (accessed via a short flight of stairs to […]

MCI 96A3, MC 102A3

The 102A3 was the first production 102-inch MCI bus available to all buyers (first delivery in October 1985) and quickly became more popular than the older, 96-inch width. Only the passenger section of the buses was widened; the front assembly with the windshield is still 96-inches wide and the body widens at a 5.5-degree angle […]

MCI 96, 102A2

This is the first 40-foot MCI coach to be produced with no tag axle. For proper weight distribution, the drive axle was moved rearward 25 inches from that on the 3-axle version. Information from the Bus World Encyclopedia of Buses - 1988

MC-9

The structure, engine and driveline were unchanged from the MC-8. Window size was increased and the windshield got taller as the roof-dip over the driver of the MC-8 was eliminated. New Jersey Transit had 700 MC-9s built at Pembina, North Dakota for commuter services. The "Jersey Cruisers" have 49 seats, no lavatory, and 6V92TA engines. […]

MC-8

The MC-8 was the first model assembled at the new Transportation Manufacturing Corporation (TMC) plant established at Roswell, New Mexico in 1974. TMC became primarily the builder of buses for Greyhound Lines while the Motor Coach Industries plant at Pembina, North Dakota, which began MC-8 production in 1973, continued to assemble buses for other operators. […]

MC-7

The MC-7, based on the shorter MC-5, was designed to replace Greyhound's Scenicruiser fleet which was averaging nearly 14 years old in 1968. The MC-7 was built concurrently with the experimental MC-6. During its production and Greyhound operating period, the MC-7 represented the current state of intercity coach design with three axles, 40-foot length, and […]

MC-6

The MC-6 was MCI's and Greyhound's first experiment with a 102-inch wide intercity bus. Two prototypes were built in 1967 and production began in 1969 for a total of 100. Many states balked in the 1970s at providing operating approval for the buses. Fifteen of the MC-6 buses spent their entire Greyhound careers in Canada. […]

MC-5C

The MC-5C featured a modernized front end to match the 40-foot MC-8 which was in simultaneous production. In 1979, over 200 special MC-5C buses were built by Greyhound under contract from Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Two versions were built, one with 44 intercity-style seats and one with 41 transit seats and two passenger doors. Modifications […]

MCI MC-5

The Fort Garry Motor Body Company was founded in 1932 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Greyhound Lines affiliates operating in Canada began buying buses from Fort Garry in 1938. In 1940, Fort Garry was renamed Motor Coach Industries. Greyhound continued to buy most of the MCI output and in 1948 bought MCI. Some 588 parlor and sightseeing […]

PD4501

The PD-4501 Scenicruiser, the most distinctive parlor bus design of the modern era, was the result of five years of effort based on a design by Raymond Loewy. Originally conceived as a 35-foot bus, Greyhound used a tandem-axle, 40-foot prototype called the GX-2 to successfully lobby for the lifting of restrictions against operation of 40-foot […]

The PD-4107 introduced a higher passenger platform to provide more luggage capacity and the distinctive style informally known as the buffalo bus because of the profile of the humped roof. This basic style was used on all remaining intercity buses built by General motors. GM built 1,267 of the PD-4107 including, in 1967, the last […]

The PD-4104 was restyled with larger windows to create the PD-4106 which was first to use the new Detroit Diesel 8V-71 engine which developed 253 horsepower. It was also the first bus with a combined heating and cooling system with the compressor driven by the engine. Appearance is similar to the PD-4104 but the wider […]

4104

While Greyhound and GM continued to develop a unique parlor bus design which was to become the PD-4501 Scenicruiser, GM constructed a bus incorporating some of its features such as picture windows, air suspension, optional air conditioning and full silversiding. Greyhound bought the first one in the spring of 1953 and eventually operated 1,253 Highway […]

4101

When operators other than Greyhound showed interest in 41-passenger diesels after the war, GM responded with its model PDA-4101. Mechanically similar to the PD-3751 and -4151, its styling set it apart from the models built for Greyhound. Some of the 335 built had 45 non-reclining seats instead of the customary 41 recliners.

Twin Level

Flxible built 208 of the split-level Vistaliner VL-100 in Loudenville, Ohio, from 1954 through 1958. Continental Trailways purchased 126 of these 39-passenger buses. They could be ordered with either a Cummins JT 600 or General Motors 6-71 diesel engine. The VL-100 had a separate gasoline engine to power the air-conditioning. Some of the other companies […]

New Look

PRODUCTION HISTORY 1961 - 1978: 12,993 built Flxible acquired the production rights to the Twin Coach transit design and built its first transit bus in 1953 on an order of 300 for Chicago’s CTA. When production was discontinued in 1959, 1,033 had been built. The first Flxible partial new look was Chicago Transit Authority No. […]

Grumman

In 1970, Flxible was acquired by Rohr Industries, an aerospace company in Chula Vista, California. During Rohr ownership, Flxible built a prototype Transbus which did not continue into production. Some Transbus features were included in the model 870 which was designed to the Advanced Design Bus specification. Prior to delivery of the first model 870 […]

Flxible Hi-Level

Produced from 1959 to 1962, the Hi-Level was similar to the Vistaliner except that the raised roof was pushed forward to about three feet back of the windshield. Seating 39 passengers the Hi-Level had all high-level seats and a six-cylinder Detroit Diesel 6-71 engine with a five-speed, fully synchronized transmission. All were air conditioned.

Clipper

The Flxible Company was founded in 1912 to build a motorcycle sidecar with a flexible connection to the motorcycle. Originally the Flexible Side Car Company, the name was intentionally misspelled in 1919 to permit the name to be copyrighted. The first Flxible bus, a 12-passenger sedan on a Studebaker chassis, was delivered in 1924 from […]

Eagle 20

Although the 102-inch Model 15 accounted for most Eagle sales, some demand continued for narrower coaches so the Model 10 was restyled to look like the Model 15 and identified as the Model 20. The first Model 20 Eagles were built in December, 1987. Because of the narrower engine compartment, the Model 20 was offered […]

Eagle 15

The first production 102-inch Eagle for general sales was introduced at the ABA meeting in Reno in October, 1985. Advertised as the Golden Eagle II, it has become known as the Model 15. The Model 15 is identified by its higher windshield and redesigned front cap with a one-piece skyview window. The side windows are […]
