Buick LeSabre Concept 1951

One of the most famous concept cars was the 1951 Buick LeSabre. Designed by Harley J. Earl’s studio with styling cues from jet fighter planes and used by him for years as an everyday driver, the LeSabre offered a preview of the aircraft styling that followed in the ’50s. The ‘51 LeSabre contained such technological features as a dual gasoline and alcohol fuel system and a moisture sensor which would raise the convertible top if it began raining when the owner was away from the car.

Remember the models?

I first was aquainted with the Buick Lesabre through a model marketed by a company called Primere. The quality was wreched. Everything was warped and nothing fit. The undercarriage was flat, lacking in any detail. The chrome was peel of tape that forgave nothing. In short were you successful at forcing the components together the result was terrible. I was a fair model builder when I bought this P.O.S. kit and blamed myself for the horrible result, never imagining in my naietivity that the 'professionls' who marketed it were just out to make a fast buck and would sell anything they could put in a box. The company also produced the Allard JX-2 in equally rotten quality. My kit was purchased in a Drugstore, and I believe no hobby shops would handle them. Has anybody besides Franklin Mint ever produced a really good model of this car?
