I am new to this bus stuff , but thought i would try and send you a photo of a rather unique Scenicruiser that I took a picture of this past summer at the LeSeure, Minnesota gas and power festival. It looks to me like it has been shortened in both the front and back. I talked to the owner's wife, as he wasn't around every time I went over there, and she said it was powered by an 8V-71 and had had the rear-end gears changed and was quite fast.

The video below is of a similar ex-Greyhound PD-4501 that has been lovingly restored to original condition:
A second video of another wonderfully restored, yet not to original form, General Motors PD-4501 Scenicruiser bus from the 1950s. This bus was exported to the Netherlands:

Here's another video of a junked General Motores Scenicruiser sitting in a junkyard waiting to be restored:

While it looks like a scenicruiser, I believe its either a Beck or Flexible, which both manufactured a scenicruiser "clone" in the 50's.

I have a 1948 Beck and it looks nothing like this unit,
nice looking camper though

Look a little closer. That's a run-of-the-mill 4104 with a raised roof.

Pretty sure that is a Beck, they made some Scenic and 04 clones. I would say that it is not a 4104. Too many things don't match
