Oh, Geez, between the Cuda and the 49 Merc Wagon, I will need to make more room on the shelves because I know I will end up getting a truckload of these. Can't wait.

Not to mention the 57 Ford and the 62 Corvette. I think Revell is trying to catapult the hobby into the 21st Century, and it's going to work.

I'm glad to see the Willys pickup being reissued, hopefully they made some changes from the HotRod series.
But even if they didn't i'll still buy a few! :)

That 57 Ford looks promising as well!

I CAN predict the future.

At least a case of 1970 Cuda kits.
At least 3 or 4 of the 71 Ford pickups.

Throw in a couple 1957 Fords and my toy fund will be drained again

Man , oh man !
Just look at those proposals !! That 1971 F-Series is definitely going to find its way into my collection ! Now if only Round2 were to restore the 2-wheel-drive "Camper Special" F-250 ("Star Truk" , et al.) , that would be great !

The Mustang coupe is just gorgeous !
I remember when , back in 1988 , the local Ford dealership had an SSP "plain jane" on their lot . Its sticker price was a hair under $10,000 (a bargain even then) . I wonder who bought it ! It was sans A/C (a no-no here in the Southwest !) and had no radio ; Certified 125 MPH speedo (maybe it was 140 MPH , I can't remember ...) , buckets , 5-speed and 3.08 Tru-Track diff .
It was medium blue / dark blue in colour .

As a side note : there was one of the rare 1982 SSP Mustang hatchback CHP models in Whittier back in the mid-late 80's . It was a retired unit ; but it was still painted black with a white roof ; its doors were painted a semi-gloss black , with traces of its CHP regalia under said paint .
I had no idea just how rare a hatchback SSP was back then , but I did find it to be unusual .

Thanks for sharing these pics and info with us !

I'm very excited about the 'Cuda, but i would like to have this mustang, particularily because it's a new 1/25 tooling and because there is a cop car version!!! Now i will have to buy at least two of these!!
Thank's Revell.....

Well...

The '57 Ford and Corvette were forgone conclusions.

The '57 Chevy convertible....I still don't know why it took so long for anyone to make one of those in plastic, but I'm glad they did. I'm in for one.

I'm not a huge E-body fan, but that 'Cuda could probably be interesting, especially if they do a 340-powered one down the road.

I really want one of the Mercury wagons. I do hope they'll drop a flathead into it, though. That Cadillac engine is just wrong for an otherwise stock car. Heck, even a Flattie with triple 97s would be okay with me. And yes, to answer someone else's question, the Ford and Mercury block are externally identical.

The Mustang LX coupe is a cool, and very bold, move- not being a GT. I think a lot of people are going to be happy with that. I'll probably grab one. I'd like to see them do a convertible that can be built as an LX or a GT (different wheels and glue-on cladding.) There's a certain black/black/gray '89 GT convertible and a beautiful girl two years ahead of me in high school that brings back many fond memories. I can't help but wonder if she still has it....I'll let you all ponder in what way I mean "has it." ;)

Moebius' chocie for a '71 Ford pickup is interesting. That's a highly-desired design generation. There used to be a blue somewhere around that model year truck down the road from me. It, and the nice little house that it lived at, are now gone, replaced by small-size McMansions.

2013 is a good year already.

Oh man Doc we got lots of great kits to look forward to next year! I'm gonna be picking up a few of those Daytona Spiders just for the wheels alone! So many kits I'm glad they're releasing. Thanks for the heads up Doc!
