PD-4501 Scenicruiser
The GM PD-4501 Scenicruiser, manufactured exclusively for The Greyhound Corporation, was a three-axle monocoque two-level coach used by Greyhound from July 1954 into the 1970s. 1,001 were made between 1954 and 1956.
The Scenicruiser became an icon of the American way of life due to its presence throughout the USA in cities and along highways and popularity with the traveling public.
The high-level design concept of Scenicruiser resembles some of the rolling stock of the passenger-carrying railroads of the United States and Canada, particularly their popular dome cars. This type of two-level motorcoach body was common in the late forties in Western Europe, including Great Britain where it was known as Observation coach.
The concept of two-level monocoque body had been used earlier in the Spanish Pegaso Z-403 two-axle coach, designed in 1949 and in production since 1951.

Greyhound Scenicruiser Conversion (?) | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
I believe this is a converted GMC PD-4501 Greyhound Scenicruiser bus (c 1955) seen on a Connecticut highway September 8, 2012. Research indicates this is one of two units called "Peacemaker" buses operated out of North Carolina by a religious group The Twelve Tribes. The Scenicruiser was built exclusively for Greyhound Lines between 1954 and 1956. Around 1000 units were built and they were used by Greyhound until well into the 1970's. I traveled on a Scenicruiser from San Francisco to Denver in 1955. (see 1st comment below for additional images) I-395 South, Norwich CT, Sept 8, 2012
