Unit 64 remained in service uneventfully through out the 1970's, 80's, 90's and into the 00's. The 60 Series started to be phased out in 2002 as the age of the fleet and American Disabilities Act requirements for a wheelchair lift became too costly. Unit 64 would be removed from service and taken to a be "scrapped" in August of 2002. Getting rid of units 6238, 6438, 6538 and 6838 meant only 6138 and 6738 remained from the 60 series. As the 2002 Fall Semester approached, CBS decided to use unit 6138 as the body for the upcoming Homecoming float. Unit 61
had the roof cut off as a part of the float design. Unit 6738 was now the last 35' GMC bus at CBS with the 40' Unit 3741 being the only other GMC bus left.
Unit 64 sat at the scrapyard for the next 7 months. Bill and I made frequent trips to get parts from the old buses for units 6738 and 3741. After conversations with the CBS mechanics, we learned that unit 64 was still in operable condition when it was dropped off. Knowing that, on March 20, 2003, Bill and I set out to see if we could get unit 6438 running. We were able to start 64 after all of those months. Then on May 16, 2003, with the help of a couple of our friends from CBS, Bill and I were able to get 6438 running again, and drove it, with absolutely no problems, to it's new home. 64 is now part of our Campus Bus Service Coaches collection.
