6210-6293 GMC/MCI TC40102N
GM/MCI TC40102N "Classic"
After four year after their last order of the GM T6H-5307N buses the TTC decided to order GMs newer model buses the GM TC40102N (Classic). Even though TTC ordered them new they are a familiar sight only a 40 foot version, this being that the heads or front portions of these buses were used in the production of GMs TA60102N buses which the TTC received as a demonstration program from the MTO. The GM classics had the head of the TA60102N but had a overall different style exterior. Technically the body of these buses are similar to the bodies of the GM T6H-5307 model and their parts are interchangeable with parts from other GM models making them easier to fix. Why these buses are named GM/MCI Classics are because General Motors was selling their production of the Classic model to Motor Coach Industries which bought out General Motors and ceased the production of buses built by General Motors. 6210-6266 were the GM models and 6267-6293 were the MCI models. These buses still run today and were rebuilt, the Classics today are common for their wrap ads they carry whether it be a full body advertisement or a rear advertisement these buses are famous for them.
