BNO is NOT the GMC Busnut Board, it is YAHOO.

I  had enough of Yahoo a few years ago when they were short of cash and sold all forum personal data after promising not to do it!!

Yahoo wants a chest X-Ray also.

Looky Look!  The original seats from our 4106 clad in leather.  The six seats have seat belts, which allows us to install car seats for the kiddies.  Four seats face each other with the dining table in between.  The seats are one of my favorite parts of the coach.

Thanks for clearing that up. I really did not think you meant BNO as that board has a great reputation in the BusNuts arena and I did not want I@N taking a hit for something that was not his.

opps!   That was Yahoo!   didn't realize Frank was talking about BNO. When he said GMC I assumed Yahoo group. Sorry for the missed placed Bad mouthing.

You're welcome.  There was no sense in duplicating efforts in finding the correct part numbers.  I spent weeks going back and forth with their parts department just trying to get the correct parts.  I obviously wasn't in any rush, either.  Good luck!  I will not be thinking of you at 4:30 am Sunday morning!  Yikes!

Yea, When I told them (fleetpride) here I had a 62 GM bus they first told me GMC didn't make a bus! ;D Checked my invoice after they arrived, all numbers are the same except the linings. You gave me MX 4541cd ( as I repeated to their counter man). Invoice showes part# FG1234541c, Hope this is right, they both have the 4145c in the number. Guess I will deal with it Monday if they are not right, and they didn't send me the bolts ??? wonder how long you have to be a parts counter man selling all new everything brake rebuild orders before you remember that they probably want the bolts too >:(. Oh well, would scare me if any thing to do with parts ever went smoothly!

                          Thanks again will be in touch           Tucson

tt,

If you run across a couple of good seats for the front of a 4104 please let me know.

We have a good friend in Green Valley and go out to visit them every Spring, we were there in April so could pick them up next Spring.

BNO is a great board too.

Thanks

Somewhere in Middle Tennessee there are a lot of mule wagons with MCI seats on them.  I gave all mine to a guy who is into long distance mule rides.  He said these seats are much more comfortable than school bus seats. 

That should be a sight, huh   :D

My father has two 4106’s, one is a ’63 and the other is a ’64. The ’63 has the outside section of the seats attached to a channel on the heating/cooling duct. The ’64 has them attached to the wall. He removed the seats from the ’64 model and at one time had them in my grandfather’s barn. I don’t recall seeing them lately, but I can ask him about them if you would like. What type of mounts do you have?

Barn Owl,

I don't know for sure since my walls are covered but I think 4104 seats are attached to the wall.

Eventually I think most buses went to pedestal seat mounts but don't know when that was.

I appreciate your offer and think that 4104/4106 seats are the same but not sure.

Where are you? Shipping these things is a humongous expense.

I called my father today and asked about the seats. Thinking they were worthless, my uncle dumped them into a ravine and covered them with fill dirt. The ’63 bus is still a seated coach; a decision has not been made yet as to what will happen to it. If it or the seats become available, I will let everyone know. Having lots of space to store things on his farm, my Grandfather saved everything. I’m not sure how this happened considering there was junk more worthy to be buried. I would have thought at the least they would try to sell the aluminum to a junk yard. I’m very sorry.
