The bus, built in 1933, was the first rear engine double decker in the world and the only one with a 'straight-in' rather than a transverse engine. The model number was 706 and it was #103 on the Chicago Motor Coach Company roster. It was eventually sold on to a movie company where it became Fifth Avenue Coach #2003, a number that never existed in the New York fleet of 720s and 735s. It survived for many years at the Orange Empire Railway Museum at Perris CA, but was destroyed by an arsonist several years ago.

Belated corrections - there was a Fifth Avenue Coach Company, roster number 2003, Yellow Coach double decker, but it was a model 720, not the same bus as in the movie, previous details of which are correct, but while it was destroyed by fire it's not certain it was deliberately torched.
