    1946 MCI courier 100, Serial number 63 This courier is one of only 2 surviving coaches from its original order and the best surviving candidate for restoration which has begun. This coach has been stored inside for the past 15 years. The restoration work is as exact as possible. The frame was blasted and painted and framework replaced as work progressed down the right side and around the back. Most of the entire frame was recreated behind the rear wheels. Exacting detail is used EG; these coaches’ panels are screwed on with pan head slot screws, so it is restored thus, 3 busses later they changed to Phillips. This project is critically very complete, including the side slider windows (which took 5 years to locate). The original drive line, RD450 (Red Diamond-IHC) gasoline engine and White transmission are in operable condition. (fuel tank is drained) The coach runs and drives fine, and the coach holds air well as well air brakes work well. The brakes are updated to current safety standards. It includes a pair of new (NOS) brake light castings and later model signals (note this coach was one of the last to be delivered without turn signals and had a very clean appearance without them.) The last surviving operating generator and the only known original seats (4 pairs still in their original brown mohair) many other various parts. Much computer work has been done to layout the original paint scheme and reproduce the builders plates, which go with the coach. To complete the restoration the trim and the rear bumpers should be remade but ample good patterns are with. This is a restoration project and although it could be made to run, the restoration should be completed first. I would estimate about $40 k in work remains to have a restored coach that is one of the rarest Art Deco vehicles in existence. Much like a Futurliner minus the 7 figure price. Will sell to the highest offer by May 15th.
