You are completely correct Traildriver! Here's the same location today. Again, credit goes to Forgotten New York.

You can see part of the Leyland nameplate just above the front bumper. Typical British lug ring on the wheel. I would assume that the power train including engine is completely Leyland.

Very weird! Did they actually cover paired windows back to appear like the older square windows? Confused

It's just a very cleaver paint job to make it appear that way.

Do you know any more about it?
Do you think it evolved from the G4500?

You're best bet is to go to the MCI website and research it.

From what I understand, these two buses came from Los Angeles. The photo is the corner of Abancay Avenue with University Park to the left. Here is the same intersection today.

Street scene from Lima, Peru back in the '60's. Check out the so called bat wings on the old look. Basically a sign board, but still the concept is the same as those in the U.S.

To this day I'm still fascinated with the split horizontal roll signs first used on the 1959 new looks. Granted they may have been hard to read, but nevertheless they were unique!

Frankly, I don't consider electronic signs as rollsigns. The rollsigns that are closest to being unreadable are when they're not centered and all you see is the bottom of one and the top of another.

Actually the first articulated buses to see revenue service in New York was the single Twin-Coach Super-Twin demo #400 back in 1947. Even though it only flexed vertically, it's still considered as ar ...
