How about something with a stock drive train? Maybe something really out there, a Fordor Sedan? Do we really need another Woodie ?

Stock drive train and optional period (50s, 60s) correct speed parts included.

Four door would be cool too.

I think the Dank Fink Speedwagon was as far "out there" as Revell is going to, then add in the forthcoming Rat Roaster, and I don't see any new kits based on the '32 Ford tooling happening.

I would suspect dual drivelines, as the last versions had..keep the flattie, Navarro heads, Strombergs...as many as 6 . Then no 302 or hemi..A Caddy from the 49 merc and gotta have a 2 speed rear....Not a lot of new tooling needed just a bit of factory kitbashing....

There is still a lot they could do to a 32 Ford if they wanted to bring it in today's styling of show cars. There is already to many aftermarket and kit parts to bash any thing from the 50s and 60s and so on style.. All that is a cookie cutter cars that 99% of the people build of that car. Look around and see what they have done from Rizzo and such in there shops in the last 5yrs to a 32 ford and build that! If you can do that then you have moved away from the great fall of any thing that has seen as a bluh bluh same'ol same'ol 32s.

I would really really REALLY like to see something buildable as stock and upgrade-able to period correct hot-rod, as mentioned above. It takes a TON of work to make a righteous '40s or '50s rod from the kits as they are now. An optional buggy-spring-style rear crossmember (or 2 actually....one stock and one to hang an A or T spring and a quickchange). If the old parts-pack tooling still exists, they're halfway home.

Of course, I really don't mind doing a ton of work.

Honestly, no. Revell has done the four most popular versions-- 3-window, 5-window, sedan, and highboy-- and you can kitbash between them to make other versions, so I don't see much demand for a B-400, stock anything, Victoria, Phaeton, nor panel/SD. The Vicky is too much like the sedan for the average consumer, so I don't see 50,000 sales of that version happening.

Now, if some of the parts from the '32s could be shared with an all-new '34, that opens up many more possibilities, but for '32s alone, Revell has squeezed all the toothpaste of of this tube. :D

What about a chassis like this if you want to build a stock revell 32 Ford.
They are available in resin

Sedan Delivery


Definitely this. I'd buy almost any <1970 car in this body style.

I do not agree a proper Closed Cab Truck has never been done for the 32 pickup.

I'd like to see '31 Ford 5W Coupe, because the Monogram kit is getting old and pricey. It's much nicer car than '32 Ford, because if the non-curved A-Pillars.

But from those, I would choose Sedan, Delivery or Panel.

I'd love a 32 truck. And stock parts would have been great for all too!
