Hi,

I'm researching the bus that Lee Harvey Oswald rode on the fateful afternoon of November 22, 1963.

Testimony described it as follows:
"Bus No. 433 was delivered [to the Dallas Transit Company] on September 2, 1952, by the White Motor Company."
"He described this bus as a White passenger bus equipped with Cummins diesel engine. "

photographs of the coach are available here:

I wondering if anyone can identify the model more specifically.
It appears to me to be a GM "old-look" model, but I understand GM didn't offer air conditioning until 1958.

Thanks,

Alek
