I'm not 100% sure, but I think by the mid-70s Almeida had sold off their 04s. At least I don't remember any on the lot. Mostly 4106s (numbered from 70 to about 82), 4107/08s (#80s-94), 4903/05s (#95-1 ...

Yep, I agree it's a 4104, don't know who it belonged to though.

Thanks for posting that great photo....I see a VT MC-7 behind it, but not sure....is that an Almeida 4104 also beside it?

Not sure about the 4104, but it is my favorite Almeida coach photo!

You know the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for"? I know a local guy who owns a 1962 and a 1965 GM PD-4106. I stopped at his house last week and asked if I could take a photo of one p ...

It sounds like dad's high opinion of the 4106 is shared by others! I have found photos of the Almeida Bus 4106s that he drove, but I'm not sure how to imbed them into a post. I recently found one onli ...

That's what I thought too. I did find a 4106 for sale locally and the guy said he'd throw in a 2nd one for parts. Both run and drive so I was ready to go.... my wife, not so much.
