'51 Deluxes were basically prototypes, only a handful were built and were mostly used for promotional purpose and sent to dealers to use for display and demo. Basically a unicorn bus today

Sweet!

How'd those Saco brakes go together? I kow some of the older kits took a little finesse to fit. They are a deal considering what you get for $950. Not many other options for a pre 63 disc brake kit anyhow.
