Historic Bus Fleet #839, Serial# T6H-4523N-377*
The 810-864 series fleet of buses was received in July/August of 1973, manufactured by General Motors Truck & Coach. The 800s served from 1973 to the late 80s and early 90s on sidelines and hill runs. After retirement, many were sold to bus lease companies and other operators. Some are still in service with these companies today. Coach #839 was purchased by historian and collector Ron Hook in 1989. This bus was traded back to AC Transit in exchange for one of our surplus 2000 series Gillig TA buses. Currently it is located at CMF (Central Maintenance Facility) awaiting restoration.
