Well, I'll start off with any Mopar that hasn't been done before.
First the 1936 Dodge Humpback (or Turtleback) delivery truck


I second that!

Also a '50 Dodge Coronet club coupe (my first car)

Re: the K cars- look at what Carroll Shelby did with their derivatives- can you say "GLHS"? I'd like to see a Turbo Spirt R/T and a '67 Sport Fury convertible, and I'll certainly second or third the motion for a late '40's Power Wagon. Also, how about a late '40's Town and Country ragtop woody- so much classier than the '48 Ford (IMHO :) ).

I have a question that might be related here. Awhile back I saw an article with a photo of a car that I think was a Mopar. It was a car that had the body made of clear acrylic plastic. May have been from the 40's. A demonstration factory car of sorts that was going on an auction somewhere. Anybody know for certain what it was? Thank in advance. If whatever it was existed as a kit it would be cool to do in scale. It would be some work though.

Joe, you are right, it is a Pontiac. I thought it was a Mopar. Sorry to throw the thread off subject.

That could make for a cool model too :D

I'd love to see the K-Cars and Minivans be done again in styrene, especially the Shelby and Non-Shelby turbo cars :)
