Man, if I could only go back in time and ride (or, even better, DRIVE) one of these classics!!!!!!!! Very Happy

To this day, I STILL call the Flexies "The OTHER New Look"! Wink

This was the first Flx set of buses where the rear windows were 4-piece from the start (i.e. as arrived from the factory) - just as MaBSTOA's GM TDH-5303's 6401-6900 were for service in Manhattan and the Bronx were for that outfit. Too bad none of the TA 'Flx's' of either order had anything resembling sustained service on any of the six (five after the 1966 discontinuance of the M-13 Journal Building shuttle bus) Manhattan routes operated by the 'Tee-Yay's' Manhattan Bus Division.
