Also, changes in crash-worthiness, egress windows and the like the design would be totally different anyway.It is impressive a 1968 design would still be in production in 1994. Much like CTA's 5000s share the same car shell as the 2600/3200 and basic design from 1976 (2400 series). That and the 1970 NJDOT Comet design (lasting to 2001).
The closest analogy in the automotive world be the Jeep "SJ" (full size) Wagoneer, introduced as a 1963 model and lasting 29 years to 1991.
