GM New Look

GM built 3,794 TDH-5301 buses, the largest “New Look” model, from 1959 to 1963. 

GM T8H-5305 buses were the third-generation 40-foot ’New Look’ GM buses delivered between 1969 and 1971.

GM built 2,562 T6H-4523 ‘New Look’ buses from 1972 to 1977.

Drivers loved these New Look buses because the windshields were much bigger and allowed for better peripheral vision and situational awareness. These were quickly nicknamed the “Fishbowl”.
