Old Look Buses - Yellow Coach and GM in the '40s and '50s

The GM ''old look'' transit bus was introduced in 1940 with the production of the Model TG-3201. The retronym "old look" was applied after the release of the GM New Look bus. Before that it was considered the new generation bus.
Unlike most of the body-on-frame buses preceding it, the old look buses were of monocoque design. The use of a General Motors diesel engine helped shepherd the change from gasoline to diesel-powered buses.
The somewhat streamlined appearance and ''standee windows'' made the bus unique and well recognized as well as liked by passengers, operators and bus enthusiasts.

With the introduction of the GM New Look bus in 1959 production stopped on all old look buses other than 28-foot models (which were built until 1963) and 30-foot (models which were built until 1969).
Through vintage black & white and color photographs, William A. Luke portrays not only the various old look buses, but also history about the bus companies that owned them. Also included are 2 bonus sections. First is a complete list of models and vital statistics for each. Second is a collection of vintage bus company publicity pieces. Both of which will delight ''old look'' enthusiasts.

Welcome Aboard the GM New Look Bus: An Enthusiast's Reference

The Truck and Coach Division of General Motors developed many designs that became industry standards. Arguably, the most notable design was the series known as the "New Look" bus for transit and suburban service. It first appeared in 1959, and the design was quite a radical departure from the models GM had produced since 1940.
The New Look design continued in production basically unchanged for over 27 years and didn't receive a face-lift until 1995 (that being the Classic produced in Canada). In many ways, it truly was the first "'ADB,'" Advanced Design Bus.

This is the story of how the New Look bus came to be, a discussion of its construction, and the many variations that comprised the New Look series.
This highly illustrated book will be treasured by all transit enthusiasts.
