This Motor Coach Industries (MCI) model MC-5 was delivered new to Western Greyhound Lines in March 1964 as fleet number #2623. MCI built 300 model MC-5s in 1963 and 1964; 261 were assigned to Western Greyhound Lines.
#2623 was acquired by Yuba College in 1978. Its restroom was removed and the interior was reseated to 41 passengers. In 2000 the bus was acquired by the Yosemite Community College District in Modesto, CA where it was operated until 2011.
In 2011 it was acquired by Pacific Bus Museum member, Tom Harris, who donated #2623 to the Pacific Bus Museum in 2017.
With their powerful v8 engines, drivers loved their MC-5s.
