#2739 only seen in the original intro.

IMDb wrote For the episodes that aired from October to December 1955, the opening credits featured a New York City bus driving down the street. An interior shot showed the view through the windshield and the back of the bus driver (intended to portray Ralph). A Buick (the show's sponsor) pulls up next to the bus then drives away. After January 1956, the opening credits were changed to the more familiar animated opening featuring the cast's names on drawings of moons. A Buick steering wheel was shown on the final moon.

The MTA has always said #2969 is a TDH-5101. I guess you'll have to check some fleet numbers for #2739:

#2969 was originally #4789, hence TDH-5101.

2739 is not included in the wikipedia list but found it here:
http://www.omot.org/roster/GMOldLookList/tdh4509.html
0156-0200 - New York City Omnibus Corp (New York City NY) 2737-2781 03/49

The real 2969 was not preserved:
1097-1171 - New York City Omnibus Corp (New York City NY) 2947-3021 11-12/50

So both were model TDH 4509.
