About the Eagle Bus
According to Eagles International (https://eaglesinternational.net/eagle-history/), “The first Eagle coach was built in Germany by the Karl Kässbohrer firm of Ulm in 1956. The Eagle coach resulted from a contract between Continental Trailways in the United States and the Kässbohrer company.” Later, “Continental had an idea of what their dream coach would look like and gave their requirements and sketches to Kässbohrer. Continental watched as Kässbohrer designed the new bus and approved every line on the new drawings. Continental gave their new bus the name of Golden Eagle as they acquired an eagle trademark as part of their 1953 purchase of American Buslines. In mid-1956, Kässbohrer built a single high specification 40 foot, 3-axle luxury coach specifically designed for and partly by Continental Trailways.” The Eagle’s American adventure will be the focus of the presentation.”
