1947 PD-3701 Silverside Bus
Scale: 1/35
No. 816
MSRP: TBA
PD-3751 'Silversides' - an intercity bus created in the mid-1930s by Yellow Coach for one of the largest coach companies, Greyhound Lines. The bus was a revolution in automobile construction. Corrugated aluminum and plastic materials were widely used in its structure, and special attention was paid to maximum comfort for passengers. Mass production has been going on since 1939 at the Pontiac West Assembly plant in Pontiac, Michigan, where General Motors used to build pickups and trucks. With the entry of the United States into World War II, the mass transportation of recruits at assembly points, and by the military in all countries, presented a major challenge, and to solve this problem the US decided to use the Greyhound Lines buses. As early as 1942, they carried more than 130 million passengers, both military and civilian, more than just an impressive figure, as it accounted for almost half of the country's population. After the war, Silversides continued to conduct passenger traffic within the country, and some of them were resold to third countries, mainly in Latin America. This bus is one of the symbols of the United States, along with Ford cars and Boeing aircraft, and embodies the significant technological progress that made this country great in the first half of the twentieth century.
