I voted for the pickup, but I would love to see them start re-issuing all the previous versions but with stock and maybe also vintage speed parts added. How about some vintage Bonneville/drylakes components? It would give me a whole new reason to buy more.  I have started to buy more of them at various times, but the modern day components always stopped me.,

So if it's going to be a stock version, or a kit with stock parts, which body style ( older releases included) ?

My guess and vote is the Pickup. 

It is the most logical for sales.

Should there come a day when the bottoms of our feet get really cold and a kit of Chili Catallo's Deuce is released, I hope it's not with these wheel covers!  :wacko:

I do like the "recipe" idea for calling out which kits and parts one needs to build a replica of the real thing, though.  :)

That "Recipe" thing was something they used to do in Car Craft and I believe Rod & Custom magazines in years (early '60's) gone by.

I always thought the AMT '32 Vic had a chopped look to it, and that's why I modified the AMT body to fit the Revell fenders, etc.  It's a little narrow from side to side, but the conversion seems to look OK. 

 

FYI:

 

The height of the side windows on a Victoria are 1.25" shorter than a 2-door / 4-door sedan. If AMT scaled the windows correctly then the body should appear slightly chopped.

 

The Victoria used the same windshield frame as a sedan. Too account for this the edges of the Victoria roof have more crown than a sedan so the windshield works out and head room isn't compromised. There are a bunch of subtle changes going on with a Victoria vs. the sedan models. Ford really did put the work into it to make the Victoria, IMO, the most ellagent looking of all of the 1932 body styles.
