The Dutch PD 3751 Greyhound Silverside page.

This is bus 252


Welcome to our website, my name is Martyn Besselsen and I'm an American Bus fan.

Just recently we bought this original Silverside on Ebay and after some efforts to get it home, I finally got to see her in real and I just love this bus. You can't believe how far ahead this bus was for its time.

Because we want to bring this bus back in its original shape, with Greyhound decals etc and want to drive passengers with it again, I appreciate any help I can get. 

Our aim is to let Dutch people experience a piece of American heritage in this 'time machine' and give them  a feeling of traveling America in the 40s and early 50s.

I need some parts and the Greyhound dogs or good pictures to make mockups. If you have any history on this particular bus I'm interested in that as well.

She arrived in Holland, now restoration is starting slowly.
