None of them are valid.  I realized this after running 13 of them and decided to change the engine code from "7" to "1."  On top of that, I changed the model year and plant codes from the VIN of 8301 from "C5" to "D6."  Along with the check digit changes, I've checked all of them and received 22 valid returns with vehicle records behind them, but I couldn't confirm the other 28, which have been reduced to the last 8 digits.

All of them are posted to the fleet and VIN pages.

So that would mean these were in fact delivered with Detroit Diesel 6V71TA engines instead of 6V92TAs. Only the CyRide demo Orion I 01.506 (1408) also made/delivered in '83 was known to have the 6V71TA, as was one bus built for Pacific Transit in Astoria, OR.

I've corrected it.  Thanks!
