As promised, here we go, amount/'year in parenthesis. For the novice, Flxibles are 4600-4727, everything else are fishbowls.

Model year 1960: 3101-3202 (102) listed officially in storage, surely some were out and about. You'll see the other 18 were at KB. Looks like the last 10 (3211-3220) were air conditioned, but my gut tells me that it wasn't very reliable! Also officially listed in storage were 90 GMC model 5106's from '58 & '59 for a total of 192 in storage.

For the non air conditioned '65 model: 6701-6900 had wings.

I thought 8301 and up were '67's but I guess they were ordered in '66 so that's why they are called '66's. Of course all these had "wings" with a/c, if it worked! All orders 1966 and thereafter air conditioned in this roster.

My sheet is a bit blurry, so we do the best we can. Corrections, discussion and comments welcomed.

Hudson: 3482-3555 (74/'63), 5246-5325 plus 5516-5525 having wings (80+10/'64), 8452-8458 (7/'66), 4800-4819 (20/'72). Total 191.

54th St.: 5326-5400 (75/'64), 6736-6777 wings (42/'65), 8546-8619 (74/'66). Total 191.

100th St.: 5401-5456 (56/'64), 6642-6649 plus 6831-6875 with wings (8+45/'65), 8459-8477 express plus 8478-8545 (19+68/'66), 4500-4505 express (6/'72). Total: 202.

132nd St.: 3301-3342 (42/'63), 6796-6830 wings (35/'65), 8620-8695 (76/'66). Total: 153.

146th St.: 5201-5245 plus 5457-5515 (45+59/'64), 6706-6735 wings (30/'65), 8696-8780 (85/'66). Total: 219.

Kingsbridge: 3203-3220 (18/'60), 3452-3481 (30/'63), 6401-6511 (111/'65), 8301-8371 (71/'66), 4820-4839 (20/'72). Total: 250.

Coliseum: 3343-3356 plus 3358-3427 (84/'63), 6650-6700 plus 6701-6705 wings plus 6778-6795 wings plus 6899-6900 wings (51+5+18+2=76/'65), 4664-4727 (64/'69), 4840-4859 (20/'72). Total 244.

West Farms: 6512-6619 plus 6876-6898 wings (108+23/'65), 4600-4663 (64/'69). Total: 195.

Amsterdam: 3428-3451 (24/'63), 6620-6641 (22/'65), 8372-8451 (80/'66). Total: 126.
