............I actually did a DOUBLE-TAKE when I saw this bus......(!!) Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

I thought I was SEEING things when I saw an Old Look with a trolley-style DECK ROOF!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Obviously, the bus was re-worked for some sort of tourist service to a historic "downtown" tourist area, somewhere.

I cannot speculate any further on this one........THANKS AGAIN for posting this truly "OFF-THE-WALL" Old Look!!!!! Wink

Very weird! Did they actually cover paired windows back to appear like the older square windows? Confused

It's just a very cleaver paint job to make it appear that way.

NOW we KNOW what an Old Look "TROLLEYBUS" might have looked like, had GM ever decided to build electric coaches....... Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Seriously, after World War Two, Old Look-style (YELLOW) trolleybuses WERE commonplace in Russia, and, also, in some other "distant locales" as well....... Wink

It seems as though the YELLOW Old Look design was "copied" for overseas use......
