Pretty good trick considering Crown went out of business in 1991.... Pretty sure they didn't build any more after that.....Wonder what else is in error. Gives me pause.

Yes it is. On the plus side, these were built on a Spartan air ride chassis so very nice ride but definitely not a classic Crown coach. Carpenter bought the Crown name but didn't just keep building Crowns, rather amalgamated the Crown name into their own product line presumably to capitalize on its industry name recognition.

an unmolested supercoach II is a nice bus.. thats a bus if its in primo condition id give 6k for..., assuming its exempted and hasnt had a DPF retrofit.. from what I understand Detroits and California DPF retrofits didnt turn out so well for longevity

the Allison transmission will have a metal tag on the side of it.. my guess is its an MT643, while you are at it you can read the tag off of the rear gears.. people will want to know what the rear end ratio is to determine what the bus's RPM at various speeds will be..

Agreed, the 643 isn't up to the task. I think the most common engine/transmission combo was the Allison HT740 with the Detroits. That's what you'll usually find in a highway coach like an MCI.
