ACF Model H-9-P.   One of 26 purchased by Southeastern Greyhound Lines in 1936. Known as "FLORIDA FLYERS".

Mike W has this neat looking bus, this is a 1936 ACF, or American Car & Foundry. If Don says this is a model H-9-P then I would have to agree. ACF bought Hall-Scott in the mid 'twenties so there is a very good chance that this bus is Hall-Scott powered. Thanks to Bill White for the photo.

The ACF model on the Southeastern roster in 1937 were the H-9-P

The H-9-P, introduced in 1935, was the first ACF flat-front intercity coach (with a P as in "parlor type") – adapted from the H-9-S, a city bus (with an S as in "streetcar type") – with an under-floor engine (a Hall-Scott gasoline engine), The H-9-P, was about 33 feet long; the H-9-P had 36 seats

Here are some photos of a later (c1950? - perhaps you can tell me) ACF Brill C36 bus chassis which had a Hall Scott under floor horizontal 6 cyl gas engine.  The chassis and engine arrangement look to me to be pretty much unique from beginning to end.

Happy New Year all!

Jeff - thank you for hosting this great fun forum!  I sure do enjoy seeing the photos, reading others comments and learning about this inherently fascinating stuff.
