I'd like em to re-release all the Chevy C1500-C3500 trucks. Maybe even the 58 Belvedere, that thing is gettin hard to find for a decent price.

The 72 GMC stepside kit is getting expensive, I would like to see it reissued soon. Same goes for their dual axle car trailer kit, it hasn't been that long since it was last available but its one of my favorites.

How about the Sunbeam Tiger, this kit hasn't seen the light of day since the late 80s/ early 90's Blueprinter issue........and the mid-late 70s before that.

Ahh yes, forgot about that one. As well as the 72 Chevy Cheyenne. Luckily, I have 2 of each, SO FAR.

l often wonder how the 70's pinto molds are and if some kit molds are still with the company or has some molds been destroyed.

Man!! Idk. . I have had too many disaster's and failures with many of AMT's kits. . The 57' Chevy Belair, and the Charger Daytona Kit was about the last straw for me with this company. . These Kit's just sucked, either that or they were just bad kits bought at the Hobby Lobby for as cheap as they were. Either way I don't think I could trust any reissued kits. . Unless I know for for sure that many changes were made and implemented into the Molding process. .

I'm sure they have plenty of old annual kit tools that haven't been reissued in decades. How about a '69 Impala SS, for example? Can you say "VEGA"? The '37 Chevy coupe 3-in-1? I always hear people looking for Ford and Dodge pickups from the 70's, and AMT (or MPC, whose tools are in with the same vintage AMT tools) made them back in the day. How about the '70 Ford Police Interceptor? Even some of the promo-like simple kits from the early 60's would be welcome. Speaking for myself, I'd flat-out LOVE to wake up some morning to the news that the '64 Corvair Monza Spyder was available once again!

A '70s Dodge pickup reissue is out of the question thanks to some heavy handed butchering of the molds for a one shot monster truck.
But the '70s Dodge vans are still viable and hopefully soon they'll be available, in light of the other van releases. Would prefer the shop van versions, but the hippie vans would be welcomed too.
And I wouldn't mind the '64 'Vair either.

Tower hobbys has this one listed as late August release.
They also have some others listed that I've not heard anything about, other than Towers site.
76 Ford custom van "Phanton", 69 Hurst Olds Cutlass, 75 Gremlin, and a few more.

x2 on this one!

I didn't realize that the GMC got hacked up to make the Cheyenne longbed kit, that is too bad. I would deff take a couple of the Chevette kits if they were reissued

How about the '78-'82 Chevy Stepside 4x4s? While the GMC Wideside version did get reissued recently, the original stock kit without the lift would be a good one to bring back. I also think that the '72-'80 Dodge trucks could possibly be reissued, too. While the longbed Sweptside has been altered, the shortbed Utiline is still intact (last reissued as the LRE). doing a comparison of the monster truck version of the Sweptside and the LRE, it looks that most of the monster truck parts are on trees that could be substituted with the LRE parts. While the truck couln't be built as the Adventurer trim leve, it could still be retooled into a stock truck. Even at that, the 4x4 parts could be restored to the LRE tool, possibly as a Warlock reissue.
