Product Description

In December 1939 Washington's Capital Transit Co. acquired batch of thirty new Ford Transit buses (model 09-B) for use on low density routes, they were numbered 2701-2730. In 1941-42 sixty more Transits (models 19-B and 29-B) were acquired, being numbered 2731-2790. Washington's Fords of 1939 and 1941 deliveries were painted out in the regular Capital Transit bus paint scheme of all-silver with a green stripe outlined in black. In late 1941 because of the war-time conditions, the silver was changed to white and roof was painted gray. The original paint scheme was restored on the CTCo buses after the war, however the roof on Fords remained gray.
