Greetings,
I am searching for any PD 4104's that are still around.
It doesn't matter if they are a bus in a museum, a custom or
home built conversion, still a bus or yard art.

Between 1953 & 1960 - 5,065 buses were made. How many
are still around after all these years?

The info I need is:
VIN - so we can track where they started from.
Status: a bus, shell, converted, scrapped,.....
Owner
Location city/state, province.
Info source: FMCA

My completed project will be posted at http://www.busnut.com

Thank you for your info. Your bus was part of a 25 bus order by Public Service Coordinated Transport. Your original dleet # was K-606.
I will add your bus to my master list. With the addition of your bus, I have 19 conversions from 1956 and would you believe that 4 of your 25 bus order are converted.

I have a converted 1959 GMC (PD-4104 - 4188)

 

Motor has been rebuilt. I don't want it to go to scrap and have it for sale. It may be that parts are the only thing left for it. I don't know.

 

Located: Everson, WA (but was registered in BC for Many years)

Vin # is PD41043883 it's not in my name yet but will be in a few months unless I give up on all this work that's ahead. Thank's Quain Stott Columbus N.C.

Jon, was wondering if you could provide any information on a 1951 4103-057 bus that I currently own and am converting into a motorhome.....

 

I believe the bus was originally sold to the Tenn. Coach Company back in 1951 as a Trailways Bus.......

 

Thanks ....
