Description Edit

A shortened version of Greyhound PD-4501 Scenic Cruiser Coach from around the 1950ies. 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 seatings is 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 1950ies Scenic Cruiser: 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.
