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.

I'm curious to see what the wheels looked like. It definitely had to be double flanged.

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 ...

This big tin bus was also available as a DC TRANSIT bus, sporting the then-current "ARTICOOLER" legend; I saw one of these for sale on eBay (with the box!) years ago, and, to say the pri ...

An interesting note:

There was also, back in 1955, a large tin toy "JACKIE GLEASON BUS" ("HONEYMOONERS SPECIAL")was in the stores, that was manufactured by Wolverine; this toy c ...
