History of the kit
This kit was produced by Dan Peterson in collaboration with others at a time when Dan owned and ran San Juan Decals shortly before he passed away. The kit was produced in very limited numbers with most being sold directly and not through dealers. Since Dan’s passing the decals part of the business was aquired by San Juan Car Co but they have not re-run these kits.
Given the limited production run, mostly presold, they are packed in a plain box which doesn’t really advertise the product which is probably why I have some left as the box just doesn’t catch the eye of passing shoppers. I am keeping a couple for my own layout and offering the others for sale.
