4101-149 Restoration by the numbers

I bought a Greyhound Bus

I have been a Volkswagen guy since 1992 when I purchased my 1977 Westfalia Bus.  Since then I have owned over 25 of them. I love the simplicity and the logic of these vehicles.  But time goes on, and I hit 50 this year, so it is time to move to something different.  In the late 1930’s Raymond Loewy (famous for designing the Coke bottle) was hired to design a sleek art deco bus and the PDG4101 and PDG3701 were born. I have been in love with these buses since about 2005 when I scrolled the web looking for crazy projects.  14 years later, I pulled the trigger and bought a 1941, 4101-149 Yellow Coach (later to become the GMC PD3751).  This is a timeline of my relationship with this bus…

  1. This is a very interesting project. I’ve also recently been getting more into buses since COVID and would like to know more about your numbers but the budget sheet isn’t showing. Keep up to good work! Cheers
