Is the fact that the front and rear suspension are on very small (pretty much containing only one part) sprues a major clue that the second option will be something with a very different front and rear suspension?

'50s cars are getting a lot of love from the model companies lately.


Maybe that because they know that all of us old fart modelers will buy 'em up like hotcakes... We grew up with all those '50's cars and we just LOVE 'EM...

Steve, the AMT '40 Willys Coupe/Pickup kit had an Olds engine in it with "ribbed" valve covers.


Nick-
Thanks. I'll have to look into that!

That's a good thing! '50's cars are what were mostly on the street when I first knew what a car was! :)

I'd love to see some more obscure '50's iron............'57-'58 Eldorado Brougham, or 1957-58 Stude Golden Hawk anyone?

Could be they are thinking ahead to a Goodguys or California Wheels-type release in the future, and will tool up suspension pieces specific to those. Or (long shot) they're considering more '49-'52 GM vehicles, and are tooling parts that could be used on any GM vehicle of the period on their own sprues.

I saw the test shots at NNL-East yesterday.

Folks, you are in for a treat! Unquestionably, one of the nicest kits I've ever seen. Very nice molding, excellent detail.

You will enjoy what you get, and Ed Sexton and I were talking for a moment. We're betting on seeing Holidays, convertibles, fastbacks and 4-doors from the aftermarket....and he really liked Motor City's resin and casting quality...Jeff, you may have another looming partnership.

No, a GOOD correct one! That kit is so off the mark proportion wise, it's not even worth it IMO. Sorry! :rolleyes:

The '49 Olds 88 IPC convertible would be a nice variation for Revell to do as a 2nd kit..

Seeing the '50 Olds at NNL East really got me stoked! The rep said it would be out in August. I want at least three.

Only 3 i will probably get a dozen myself and if they do any variations will get a bunch of those as well.

I think that fad has passed as far as Revell is concerned. I will guess they'll do something similar to the '50 Ford pickup, with a custom version to follow in a few years. It looks like Revell is already including a dual carb intake manifold in the Special Edition release.

I would LOVE to see them do some Cali Wheels style wheels for this one with the seprate front and backs and disc brakes like the 67 Chevelle ,69 Vette or the 59 Vette kits from the past or maybe just tool up back for the Twisted Intros from the 69 Camaro convertibles...

Or maybe even a convertible body too like this

What with the way the "spy network" runs, this may be the reason AMT dropped their plans, the way I heard it, AMT had plans for this car to be released decades ago, & dropped it then because Revell was planning a release also, & it never appeared. Talk about a long delay in releasing a kit! :P
