    This is actually a model of a GMC PD-4501 Scenicruiser but it was just called a Greyhound Bus by Matchbox/Lesney. A proper Matchbox model was made in England by Lesney.
    Anyway this was a classic vehicle seen on the highways of the USA in the 1960s when this was made. Would not be my first choice for transportation. Seems a bit unpleasant in all the movies I have seen but then those are just movies. I prefer to drive myself because then I can stop when and where I want.
    The model was in the catalog from 1966-1971. In 1970 it was turned into a Superfast model. And thanks to McCoy Nelson we can see by the base it has "Made in England" Before "Matchbox Series" so this one is post 1966 which narrows this down to 1967-1969.
    Will have to put a boxed version of this on my to get list.

      Very cool Greyhound bus fort, perfect design of the real thing. You're right they were uncomfortable I was more of an Amtrak traveler myself

      And Ignatius Jacques Reilly abhorred their uncomfortableness as well :)

      Looks big. Does it have an Oriental Lounge ?

      Thank you very much Newfld. I have been meaning to take the Amtrak coast route.

      Thank you very much Ted. I shall take your word for it.

      Thank you very much elanski. I think it has a restroom.
