I'd love to see any of the old Turbo cars, 4.0l Cherokee (make for a great engine swap into a Gremlin :) ), and some of the newer FWD's...........like my 200 :D





Can I second on the '70 Charger? The Revell '68/'69 kit would makr a fantastic basis for a '70 ;)

Like Stan Lee would like to forget the live action TV Spiderman, i'm pretty sure Chrysler would like to forget the dismal K cars. :lol: :lol:

I think people have cloudy memories of the past.
The 80s were a tough time for all the car makers. The K car series were good cars for the time. Car & Driver headlines were "Chrysler digs out with a dandy new shovel." when the first two were tested.
The Daytona turbo was K based as was much of the line up. They were tough profitable cars that were as good or better then anything that the competition had at the time.
Now we look back at those cars and say, "What junk." Which is the same thing the people in the 80s thought of cars from the 70s.
Would I trade My 2006 Charger R/T for a 1989 Daytona Turbo.. Heck nooooo!
But I would trade it for my old 1970 440+6 Roadrunner.
Just my 2 cents.

Late model 4 door dually in any make. So many possibilities. Not much sense in having race rar trailers and nothing to pull 'em with!

I'm even more sure they realize without the K-car and it's many derivatives, Chrysler Corporation would have joined Packard, Studebaker, Cord, and all the other defunct American automakers almost two decades ago. They may not have been sexy, but they saved Chrysler.

A model kit of an Aries or Reliant...no. I'm not even sure a resin kit would be worth creating, based on projected sales.

I'm hoping Moebius' Ford Pickup kits sell well, and maybe spark an interest at Revell for them to take on a 1/25 scale '72-'80 D/W series and RC/TD project or two.

Definetly, the 68' Dodge Coronet R/T should be considered for release. I hope the kit companies are seeing this thread.
The 68' Coronet R/T can easily be a 3 in 1 kit. A stock street version, nascar version (#99 Paul Goldsmith car) and a drag version. This would be a
very flexible kit. I beleive there is a good chance for this to come out and we may very well see this happening.

Well, I'll start off with any Mopar that hasn't been done before.
First the 1936 Dodge Humpback (or Turtleback) delivery truck and an art deco beauty the 1938 Dodge Deluxe coupe.
Then I'd want the 1955 Plymouth Savoy two door sedan and the 1956 Dodge Crown Lancer two dor hardtop.
Somewhere in there I'd include the 1959 Desoto Adventurer and the 1961 Chrysler 300G. Gotta love those fins.
I'd want an all new issue of the 1972/76 Dodge D-100 and or the 1977/80 Dodge D-150 pickup since the MPC truck can never be reissued after the mold was butchered for a one shot monster truck.
And last, but certainley not least, the 1969 Chrysler 300 in both hardtop and convertible configurations.
There are others, lots of others, but this will do for now.

Amen to that.
They were decent cars for their time. I had an 84 Daytona Turbo w manual trans. While not a hot rod by any means, it was still plenty fast and good handling in comparison to what else was out at the time.
