It might be a DD 8.2L 4-cycle or a DD 6V-53 or 6V-71 2-cycle but it can't be a DD 6-71. A DD 6-71 would be too long to fit into an RE configuration without going to a drop box like in a Flxible Flexliner. And to my knowledge Gillig never used a drop box configuration.

The model number of the bus should tell you what it had when it left the factory.

636 would be a Cat 1160/3208. 190 would be a Cummins C-190. 534 would be a Ford 534 V-8. 555 would be a Cummins 555. 501 would be an IHC RD501. 736 would be a Cummins 220/262. 855 would be a Cummins 270/335/350. 426 would be a DD 6-71. 318 would be a DD 8V-53.
It is the 6V-71, I must have missed the V when I typed that.

Model # is 426D-13, Serial # E-1787

Perhaps someone more adept with these things can help me interpret exactly what I have?

The 426D means it has the 6V-71 engine, D is for diesel, and 13 means it had 13-rows of seats.

Hi Ryan!

We are brand new here and just bought a '66 Gellig. We are pretty excited about it. I am concerned about some roof rust issues on ours, and hoping to get ideas on the best ways to go about repairing those areas prior to laying on some new paint. How is yours coming along? I see you posted this back in Dec, so you've had some time to play with it. Thanks!

I recently purchased a 65 Gillig in Castlerock, but owner said it came from further north in WA.. Where did you find the engine sizes from model #? I have no "paperwork" and the model # is 743D-13, which I don't see on your list. Any help would be great..

Olympia Washington, wow that brings back memories; In my late twenties I loved a girl who lived there, moved there to live with her. We parted ways and gosh darn it hurt like nothing else...
