The Next Four Pictures Are 40 ft. Becks

Beck only made twelve of these 40 foot cars, the DH-1040's, four of which were originally purchased by Queen City, 3-43 passenger cars and 1-47 passenger car. Seven others, 4-39 passenger jobs with two lavs and 3-43 passenger cars with a single lav, went to Cuba's Autobuses Habana-Oriente (Havana Eastern Bus). The final unit was used by Beck as a demonstrator and was subsequently sold to Queen City. These buses had air power steering, independtly powered air conditioning and were powered by a huge Cummins NHRBS-600 diesel.
