Its just GM, not GMC. The buses were built by the General Motors "Coach Division"

You could only get the front view? Also these kinds of buses were nicknamed "Fishbowl Buses".

You question asks if there was no better picture? It was uploaded at the time that we only put one picture per vehicle, before the arrival of Imageshack thumbnails :D It is maybe not the best view of the bus, but it represents it well. I should rewatch the DVD to add more pictures.

The nickname came from it's rounded front windshield!! In a way, it does look like a fishbowl. I love these buses. I rode them since I was a kid growing up in Chicago. :D

Beginning in 1959, the General Motors Truck/Coach division became known as GM. After 1967, it became GMC. This explains why many of the 'New Look' buses on this site have different builders plates.

NOTE: Buses from 1959-1966 have a plate that says GM.
Buses from 1967-1977 read GMC, and Canadian new looks (1977-1986) read GM, or BBI (Brown Boveri Industries)

This bus kinda looks a little like a greyhound bus.

Is it possible this is a 1970s or early 80s GM of Canada produced bus? If you look at the speedometer, there is a red dot at 55 MPH, much like how cars in the late 70s and 1980s had a circled or different colored 55 due to the national 55 MPG speed limit???

Also, they used about 10-13ish buses for the movie, maybe the one with the instrument cluster shot was a newer fishbowl bus...

There are still a good number of New Looks in service in Toronto & Montreal, Canada believe it or not, And for truck man who said this bus looks a little like a Greyhound bus to him, There were some new looks that were purchased by Greyhound and used as shuttle buses at the 1964 New York World's Fair as well as some their intercity routes.

I love the shot of the bus making a wide turn on an LAX runway with a 747 taking off in the background. According to IMDb trivia it took more than 50 takes to get that shot right!

One went back into service, as it was just borrowed (the one for the first few scenes).
One stayed with the company that provided the other cars (fate unknown).
And they killed three more (one for the jump, one for the explosion, one with the booby-trapped door.

I watched the movie again this evening, it had been a long time.
Still a very good movie, except this scene of the bus jump which is not very convincing... I'm surprised that there were no pics of it.

They did the jump for real (the good old time where movies weren't full of CGI) but had to use a ramp, as it is physically impossible to make such jump on a "flat" gap. They should have integrated the ramp in some kind of road works stuff left at the end of the road, instead of erasing it digitally (as it seems that's what they did).

More on the runway action, and the airplanes, on the impdb - one of the great links to this site.

Back in the mid-1990s, Entertainment Weekly had a classifieds page and someone was selling pieces of one of the buses.

One of the buses used for filming was sold at auction for US$102,000 in 2018 and ship to Japan, currently at TokyoComicCon.
