This is a rare teal colored four-seater "bucket" from the Disneyland Skyway ride that ferried guests high above from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland and back. The original Skyway ride vehicle introduced in 1956 was a round bucket seating only two passengers. In 1965, they were replaced by the square bucket, designed by Imagineer and Disney Legend Bob Gurr, which accommodated four guests. This original late 1960s Skyway bucket is constructed of fiberglass and machined aluminum and stands 6 feet tall and measures 68" long by 51" wide. It weighs approximately 400 pounds. The number "50" is printed in the front of the vehicle in white lettering. Some wear and age, as is custom with ride vehicles that have sustained many years of weather. Overall, in very good condition. Special shipping required.
