Here's a 1968 GM PD-4903-089 origanilly owned by Public Service Coordinated Transportation of New Jersey. It was fleet number Z-619. It was sold in the early 1980s to a private concern and somehow I found out about it and saved it (so far) from the crusher. I would like to restore it. It needs very little work, unlike my 4103.

I drove both models, and I'd take the 4103 any day! 4107s and 4903s/5s had a horrendous problem out on the road in the west, in that when descending a steep grade in first gear, they'd pop out of gear without warning! Back east, this wasn't a problem, since they don't have mountain grades back there to speak of. I almost lost a 4905A going down Wolf Creek Pass on a tour one time account of this defect.
