I haven't bought the hardtop yet and now they're coming out with this! I can't wait to get a hold of this one!

I wonder if it will have the dog dish caps on the box art, because those are '60-'63 caps usually seen on six cyl cars. They only fit the 13" rims, weird choice for a street/strip car. Nevertheless, I'll buy one.

When the corrections are made to the chassis to allow a accurate F/S build of this kit, I'll buy one. Not until then. 50 bucks for a inaccurate kit just doesnt cut it. Mobius's Hudson is far more accurate, and far cheaper. It's too bad, as I really like this subject.

I'll buy one of those too, and I'm not even a Hudson enthusiast. I just really appreciate how Mobius showed the test shots and listened to input from modelers, which is something I've never heard of before. Such actions should be rewarded, I think.

I haven't seen the contents of the Street & Strip version but the '65 Ranchero will have '64 full size Ford style poverty caps like the ones in the Revell '64 Fairlane Special Edition 2n1 version. The Ranchero also comes with the Deluxe wire covers like in the 64 Falcon Hardtop version.

A shame this kit's $50 (or likely close) I'd just love a set of those hubcaps.

i dig that cover art there...check it out, he is installing dual quads while taking off the what looks like 4 Webers or maybe some fuel injection set up.

was there advance notice of this variation being released? i recall trumpeter was putting out a stock falcon but not hi-po versions.

are there parts as in the illustration included with the kit?

and a 65 ranchero? did i read that right?

i have to get at least one of each...the stocker didnt do much for me but this is more like it.

That's great, because those caps are correct for '65 Falcons.

The box art shows this trim too, instead of the two tone trim with the chevrons a la '64 Futura/Sprint. Another great thing, because now I can finally build my own car.

This should be more interesting kit, than the normal HT version, I have. But maybe that doesn't matter so much, because I could saw this kit chassis also. Maybe needs to get this kit too, but let's see after some years when I've finished the Pro Street Falcon...

I think that you have that backwards, it's quite obvious that he's taking of the little AFB set up, & installing the much better Weber set up ala the Cobra kit that Ford offered back then, (the deep cast aluminum pan, & the four Weber carbs, & manifold.

Oh, I thought it was F/ Stock, like in drag racing. Next question, why wouldn't it be "factory" stock ? What would be different ?

As much as I like the car and would love to build one, there's no way I'll send $50 on a model car kit.

The Hudson Hornet has accuracy issues too. Like the rearend mounting to the frame,emblems that look like they are a scale three inches thick,pegs on light lenses. Plus these kits are not $50 like everyone keeps saying. They're online everywhere in the $36-$39 range. Even if they were $50,I would pay $50 for a Trumpeter Falcon before I would pay $15 for the Mobius Hornet.
