The Pacific Bus Museum is more than just a garage full of old buses.
We also have an office full of old papers!
But in all seriousness, our Archives have an impressive collection of historical documents that include original manufacturer bus records, transit company timetables, and the membership newsletter, The Paddle.
If you are a Crown Coach owner, Contact Us. We have all the original records from the Crown Coach Corporation. We can tell you when your bus was made, who it was sold to, etc.
Our members are actively working to catalog, organize and digitize these records, but in the meantime, we know how to find what you need in all the old file cabinets.
When you walk into our main garage, you will see that it is full of donated memorabilia.
We have this and so much more that has been donated to us over the years. These include classic magazine collections, collectible toys, mechanics manuals, photographs, and a lot more we still need to catalog and organize.
We have a lot of the Ralph Canto’s collection, which he describes in this great video, “All About Ralph”:
