Does anyone know the actual interior height of a 1960 30' Gillig bus? I am close to buying one located a plane flight away and don't want to get there to bump my 6'1 head on the ceiling and waste the owners time, and my money getting there and back empty handed. Thank you!
According to wikipeda I would say 6'0"
In the mid-to-late 1960s, Another change made that year was the standardization of the high-headroom roof option; instead of 72" (6'0") being standard, 79" (6'7") headroom was now standard inside all Gilligs. In 1974, the design of the dashboard was changed. To improve driver ergonomics, all switches were centralized onto a control panel to the left of the driver; many school buses use this layout today. 1974 was also the last year a gasoline-powered Transit Coach was produced.[4
