Greyhound Coach (1966-69 RW66)

Description: Edit

A shortened version of a 1:159 scale model GMC PD-4501 Scenicruiser coach. This model has only three pair of big panorama side windows in the back, instead of four like the real world model. The number of seats are reduced accordingly.

The regular wheels Matchbox Greyhound Coach first two axles travel on a flexible plastic bar, recreating one of the most advertised feature of the 1950s Scenicruiser: Air-ride suspension. The trailing axle isn't load bearing and has no suspension. It is just attached through a pair of o-shaped holes to allow vertical travel together with the other two.
