The NYCTA/MaBSTOA 1969 Flxible 111CC-D51's were renumbered from the 4000 series into the 7200 series in order to make way for the 1985 GMC advanced design buses that would be numbered in the 4000's.The first order of '73 flxibles runs from 7000-7204,then there is the gap;7205-7299,before the next order of '73 flxibles.This gap was used to renumber the 111CC-D51's out of the 4000 series.Is there a conversion chart/roster that I can find on the web with the renumbered 1969 111CC-D51's ? Many thanks in advance !

The August, 1985 issue of Motor Coach Age features NYCTA bus renumbering. I don't know if it has a complete table of old and new numbers or not, as I haven't gotten around to ordering it yet.

I'd also like to see a list of Blitz renumberings, which UTC has said is "coming soon" for the past couple of years. Here's a partial list complied by examining builders plates of preserved and recently-scrapped coaches, and from information posted on BusTalk by JL Gutierrez on 1/31/02, by Bill from Maspeth on 2/10/02, and B53Rich on BusTalk on 1/22/02 and BusChat on 8/31/07:

5000/8585
5001/8304
5002/8323
5003/8426
5004/8143
5005/8526
5006/8545
5007/8430
5008/8542
5009/8610

Do any of you remember back in the mid 1980's when the NYCTA
renumbered their 1970 GMC TDH5305A buses from the 4300 to 6400
fleet series
because of the order of new 1986 GM RTS buses in the
4400 series? Question

I remember quite a number of those renumbered into the upper 6300's, 6400's and 6500's at Fresh Pond. Originally they were 4300's, 4400's and I think 4800's. I'm looking for a renumbering list similar to the Flx list posted .

One question. Did MABSTOA's 5309A #4800 not get renumbered for some reason?

MABSTOA's 4800 was rebuilt by the Blitz Bus Corporation in 1984 and was renumbered 5511.
