Here we see NYCTA's #21, a GM TDH-5301 on display at City Hall, 1960

Official records show that the first NYCTA fishbowls 1-190 were all built and delivered in the Fall of 1959 contrary to the sign below the windshield. 1960 models were numbered from 501 thru 805 and delivered in July 1960.

This photo is a bit puzzling.

Maybe "1960" sounded more modern to entice visitor's to view it....
I remember those Chrysler Corporation ads in the Fall of 1956, when they introduced the tail-finned, 1957 "Forward Look" cars designed by Virgil Exner....
the ads screamed: "Suddenly, it's 1960"..... Laughing
