Hi All

 

I just bought a 1960 PD 4104 Motorcoach conversion from a gentleman in Washington State.

 

The coach was converted in the late 70 early 80's. 

 

The Vin #  PD41044817 and it has a FMCA # 23181.

 

Any history on this bus would be great. It has been setting for 8 years so I'm redoing things that need replacing.

 

I hope to have it back on the road next summer.

 

Thanks Allen

Allen,

My name is Jon and I am working on tracking down all the 4104's left in the world.

My records are at home and I will respond with that info tonite.

Your serial number tells me it is a 1960 coach.

I also can provide you with free manuals and sources for bus parts.

My email is jusle@aol.com

I am an FMCA member and with the Western GM chapter.

The 4104 is a great old coach. Being converted in the late 70's, early 80's, is a plus, as you will have the starting places already in place. You will surely have a lot of work ahead of you. Make sure that all electrical is good for todays standards.

The plumbing will need to be checked thoroughly. Updates to the above mentioned will be well worth your while. There is a book called bus converters bible, it is well worth reading, to get yourself up to speed on how to get going. Of course, though you didn't mention it, you may have done much of this kind of work before. If you already are familiar with coach conversions, then good luck on getting it back on the road next summer. Looking forward to seeing any progress pictures in the future.

Happy trails,

Kay
