Re: NYCTA Bus Roster 1/1/73

Old Looks 7000-7208 (1957's) and 9000-9120 (1958's) were 5106's. those 100 GMC 5301's were 1-190 (1959's)

I loved those old looks when I was living in Brooklyn back then. The 9000/9100's were on the B-23. After school at Ditmas JHS, I would pass up a 1000/1100 fishbowl for a 9XXX sereies bus that would come next.

Later on in my high school days at Erasmus, I would pass up a fishbowl on the B-41 and wait for the next bus which was a 7XXX old look. When the weather was hot, I would opt out for the 8XXX series A/C'd fishbowl.
