1981 Orion 01.504 Demo (The High Q)


Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the 1981 Orion I 01.504 demonstrator bus that was purchased June 17, 1983 by the Quality Inn (or "The High Q") of Orlando, FL?

Because it was built in 1981 it would have had a Detroit Diesel 6V53N engine, but once it set foot here in FL it had to be changed to the 6V53T engine. Or, with modifications to the rear compartment, it could have had the 6V92TA engine.

So 6V53N to 6V53T or 6V92TA. Was the Allison a MT-643 or 644?
