1940-41 Mack CL Bus Brochure

As described from the previous post this brochure talks about the buses, built in '32 lasting almost 9 years (at that point) on tough New York City streets. Note Cliff's descriptions of the
CL’s engine located inside the bus to the right of the driver, underneath a cover. There was a great big gearshift lever for the manual transmission, so a driver, in the course of his career must’ve made a million or more gear changes. The fare was a nickel which you dropped into a 3-arm turnstile.
