Initial Service

The IC-41 was a very successful postwar bus for ACF-Brill Coach Manufacturing Company from 1946 to 1954.

This bus is thought to have run for the Southeastern Greyhound Lines.

Service History

This Greyhound Lines bus was part of the Greyhound Bus Museum collection. It was acquired by Frank Gonzalez in early 2023.

Pathway to PBM 

Frank Gonzalez has loaned this to the Pacific Bus Museum and is on display in Fremont for a limited time.

Update: This bus went home on Wednesday, Nov 8, 2023. We sure are going to miss having it around.

 

What People Love 

Drivers loved this bus because it was capable of 80 miles per hour which was much faster than the 6-71 GM Diesel-powered GM Silversides coaches. It is powered by a powerful 6-cylinder Hall-Scott gasoline engine mounted on its side “mid-ship” between the front and rear axles. This massive engine put out 240 horsepower and impressive locomotive like 600 lb-ft of torque at only 1000 RPMs.

This bus is a must-see when you come to visit the Pacific Bus Museum.
