The Prevost Car H5-60 was an 60-foot, articulated motorcoach. It was the first in Prevost's H-Series and was a large departure from their previous coaches. With only 46 H5-60 coaches ever produced and a high operating cost, these buses are quite rare.

The H5-60 featured five single-wheel axles, with twin-steering axles at the front and a single steering axles at the rear. The engine was located in the front section of the coach, forward of the two middle axles.
