Caption on back reads, "University of Illinois students board $35,000 air-conditioned bus given for the University's Division of Rehabilitation-Education Services by Greyhound Lines, and remodeled and equipped with wheelchair lift in a $10,000 gift from Blitz Auto Body Corp. of Chicago. This vehicle is for longer trips. Its first use was to take students to participate in the National Wheelchair games in New York.
