THESE 40 INCH LONG BUS PROMOTIONAL PLASTER CAST MODELS RARELY COME UP FOR SALE. WHEN THEY DO, IN NEAR MINT CONDITION THEY COMMAND UPWARDS OF $3500-$5000. THESE WERE NOT CHILDRENS TOYS OR PRODUCED FOR THE MODEL KIT MARKET. THEY WERE MADE MAINLY FOR DISPLAY IN BUS TERMINAL COUNTERS AROUND THE COUNTRY. RAYMOND LOEWY DESIGNED THIS CLASSIC TOUR BUS THAT BEGAN A GOLDEN AGE OF BUS TRAVEL IN THE UNITED STATES. THIS RARE PIECE ONCE BELONGED TO A SEATTLE BUS TERMINAL SUPERVISOR AND WAS STORED IN HIS ATTIC FOR MANY YEARS. ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT IN MINT CONDITION, IT IS ALL INTACT AND EXTREMELY DISPLAY WORTHY. OVERALL, IT HAS A WONDERFUL NATURALLY AGED PATINA. THERE ARE AREA'S OF CHIPPING AND SOME LINE CRACKS. COULD BE TOUCHED UP PROFESSIONALLY BUT SHOULD BE KEPT ORIGINAL. THIS STILL DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE OVERALL DESIGN AND BEAUTY OF THIS RARE PIECE. SERIOUS COLLECTORS ONLY PLEASE...WILL NOT SHIP...TOO FRAGILE...MUST PICKUP.
