The W.M.T.C. has designed another beautiful Brooklin set for the 1997 special. They’ve chosen a 1948 Chevrolet Aero Sedan in powder blue, teamed up with another "woody", a 1947 Wesley Slumbercoach. This was a preview for the 1947 Wesley Slumbercoach, which was not scheduled to be released by the Brooklin factory until January 1998. This small trailer was no more than a small bed on wheels, but it was enough for the adventuring American public of the early 50's to be able to hit the road and see the nation’s natural wonders. W.M.T.C.’s version is finished in a matching powder blue with wood grain sides and silver-colored propane tank. The W.M.T.C. Brooklin special set is packed in a special box with specially created artwork. The total number of model sets produced was just 165.
