The dual-engine arrangement on the original Scenicruiser provided Greyhound with mechanical problems and when in 1959 the Detroit Diesel announced its new V6 diesel engine for use in GMC 'New look' transit buses, Greyhound decided to rebuild the Scenicruises with 8V-71 version of this engine and also incrorporate other changes and improvements at the same time. When GMC declined the rebuilding contract, Greyhound went to Marmon-Herrington in Indianapolis, the the whole rebuilding program was done between late 1961 and late 1962. Two 4-71 engines were replaced by single 8V-71, new standard four speed mechanical transmission was installed as well as new upholstery, flooring and fixtures. The famous Scenicruiser livery was also changed with new Greyhound lettering and dog logo plus gold Scotchlite reflective striping was added. At total, 982 coaches were rebuilt and they were split between four Greyhound operating companies (Eastern Greyhound Lines, Central Greyhound Lines, Southen Greyhound Lines and Western Greyhound Lines). The Greyhound name and the Scenicruiser are registered trade marks and are reproduced with permission from Greyhound Lines, Inc.
