Peter Pan Futurliner
'33 World's Fair
October 2007 we received this photo of the Peter Pan Futurliner from Pedro.
He took it at the Big E, (Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, MA.) It
appears that they have repainted their Futurliner in the original colors.
Don Mayton remarks that they have ordered the castings for all the letters
on the sides as well as the front. He also points out that there are still
lots of differences from the original as they did some modernization on
their Futurliner like the driveline (engine and transmission).
Below and on subsequent web pages you can read about their restoration effort. Again, they are to be commended for restoring a rare piece of history.
The Peter Pan Bus Company of Springfield, Massachusetts completed restoration of their Futurliner in the summer of 2000. Congratulations to Bill Sinico on an outstanding restoration job and to Peter Picknelly for his vision, financial funds, and the resources to get it done. And finally, congratulations to everyone who worked on the Futurliner. The results are outstanding and the vehicle can be appreciated for years to come for the historical role that it played.
|If you have any additional information about the history or whereabouts of additional Futurliners, we would like to hear from you. Our objective is to capture as much of the history of these vehicles as possible.|
