1950's era Greyhound GM Sceniccruiser bus.
One of the more unique over the road long distance motorcoach buses I remember seeing from my own childhood growing up in Chicago during the 1960's and 70's era, were the popular General Motors split leval Sceniccruiser buses used by the Greyhound Bus Company.
Introduced during the early 1950's, these buses provided comfortable long distance travel for Greyhound bus passengers in to the 1970's. The gold stripe below the windows shown here, began appearing on Greyhound buses around 1960.
Although I never had the opportunity to actually ride aboard one of these classic American motorcoach buses, a handful have been preserved by private individuals today.
