Brill Bus Brillo 8-9-06  

I own a 47' IC-41 Brill bus and I'm in need of some parts and info concerning this model.

Does anyone here have one or know someone who has?

I need some info on some factory parts and placement.

Any help?

Re: Brill Bus Gary 1-17-08  
I have two ACF Brill C-36 buses, circa 1946 or so. They have not been run in 30+ years. May be of interest to collectors/ restorers for parts or as whole project. Cleaning up our old farm, anyone interested please respond to email asap by spring they will go to salvage yard.

Hello. I am parting out a 1946 or 7 Brill bus with a Hall Scott 190-2 engine.Conition is not known. It is located in Kamloops BC Canada
Re: Brill Bus Barry 2-22-07  
I just bought two ACF Brill busses, that I believe are early fifties models. I haven't found a way to clearly ID the year yet. The busses do NOT run. However, there may be many parts that are of interest to collectors or anyone who restores these things. I operate a scrap yard, so if I do not get a reply within a few weeks at the most, these busses will be cut up.

If anyone is interested in parts, I can take pictures and email them to you. Reply to

Re: Brill Bus Phil Feinstein 8-10-06  
ACF-Brill were the busses used by Baltimore transit up until 1967 or 68 (See

From the website I found, it looks like the Baltimore transit auth. bought busses to canibalize to keep THEIR Brill fleet running. You might have much better luck retrofitting rather than trying to restore.

You can buy old stock shares of ACF and ACF-Brill (, but I can't easily find an NOS manufacturer or salvage operation that advertises parts for a Brill.

Hope that helps!

Selling a 4-speed manual transmission from 1951 Brill IC41. Currently attached and working on the Hall-Scott 190-5. Planning to keep the engine just wanting an automatic.

Looking for some parts - what ya got??
Re: Brill Bus Brillo 8-10-06  
Thank you Sir!

I know the history of mine since the day it left the factory in Pa.

I'm sure your right in figuring I'll need to upgrade things, but I was hoping to discuss what (and where) some of the things I have go- or do-
Mostly (at this time) I am in need of some outside trim items-

I'd also seen the one on the "Bay" and contacted him.
He wrote in his ad he knows of some members from the old Brill club, but I don't know of any....yet.

Thanks so much again, Phil-

I have a COMPLETE set of factory Brill IC-41 engine and body manuals, a Crown engine and electrical manual for the same bus. Also fairly complete set of the old Brill Club newsletters from #1 to sometime in the early 90's.(I was the editor for a time). Included is msc. literature, service bulletins etc. I also have a set of valid California ownership papers,non-operation certificate, and brass coach identification plate to match (IC-41-135. For historical purposes only, I privately scrapped the coach out some time ago). Anybody need this stuff? Make me an offer, I'll get you a shipping cost from California.

The Manuals are rare, but the busses are not too complicated.

Re: Brill Bus Mr Daryl J. Smith 7-24-11  
Dear Sir.
I have an 1947 Brill myself that IO am going to restore back to original condition, I would be interested in the motor & transmission if you plan to sell them one day. I am also in need of seats etc for my unit. Plus any other body parts that you do not want. I am in Vancouver, BC Canada and have the coach down here at my work yard. ie Horizon Coach Lines Ltd Vancouver, BC.

I knew the one in Kamloops, BC that Hugh had he scrap it and wreaked most of the parts in the process, it was an 1946 ex Pacific Stage Lines Number 211, mine is the number 6247. his was a very valuable coach as was one of the frist made, so had all the inside luggage racks etc, as it was made to show what they could be order with back in the day. I do have the factory blue prints of the complete wiring system for these coaches that I would be willing to have copied and sent to you if interested in them.
Thanking You I am Mr Daryl J. Smith
