that is the only pic of the bus in that book. the pic is on the first page of the book. there are no details as to its location.

here are some other grayline deluxes, although they are later models.

Interesting thought! Any evidence of holes for the Taxi sign on the TomTom bus? Antenna placement matches...

I just talked to John and he feels that this bus may be the Tom tom bus as well. He is searching for the plates that came on the bus. That may match the photo. Cool find!

Yes, but those are '66 plates. The pic was taken 5 years prior...
Let me guess, he threw that light assembly in the dumpster and welded up the holes...?

You are exactly right about the plates. You got the idea posted before I could type it out.
