R33/R36 World's Fair Cars

Recommended Posts

In looking through Mr. Sansone's book, I noticed that there are R33 World's Fair cars as well as R36 World's Fair cars.

I had thought that they were all R36s. Now I know better.

How long did the original paint scheme last and when were the R33/R36 white?

Some of the cars were repainted into the MTA corporate silver-blue by 1973-1974, but many (particularly R33 singles) wore their original paint until the end of the 1970s. They looked quite, quite weathered by then. It was fairly common to see mixed consists of World's Fair paint and the silver/blue through the 1970s. In 1980/1981 the MTA began painting the cars white, finally getting to the final cars in their original blue paint. That white paint carried on through the mid-1980s, until the fox red paint began with GOH in 1984-1986.
