ACF introduced air conditioning on intercity buses in 1939. In 1950 they were introducing a/c on city transit buses evident by these photos. Note the a/c grill behind the front wheel.

The proposed bus order was for 100 model C-36 for San Antonio.

Interesting...
I am not familiar with the C series ACF-Brills used for transit, but I do remember the highway 37-P and IC-41's. They had Hall-Scott underfloor "pancake" engines, that were located under the center of the coach...
Did the C series have rear engines?

Their transit models were the C-36 (the model in the post) and the C-44. Both of these had underfloor Hall-Scott engines.

Their transit models C-27 and C-31 had rear mounted International engines.
