VERY nice !!!

If the tooling 'proofs' look this nice , I can only imagine that the finalised products will be stunning !!

 

Is the engine in that final pic supposed to represent the "385 Series" ( 429 / 460 ) or the "FE Series" ( 352 / 360 / 390 ) ; or is it perhaps a "335 Series" (351C / 351M / 400) ?

Looks great no matter what :) .

 

Thanks for sharing !

Thanks Dave, getting ready for some room on the bench for these babies! 

 

Sure hope someone is willing to make 4wd conversions for these kits as I have many ideas for 2wd & 4wd versions.

Completely different body and interior.   These are the '67-72 generation.  For a '78, I'd use the AMT '78-79 which was last out as a Model King issue maybe 5-7 years ago.

Great jukka Mukka , ya mean we're finally gona see a REAL 1-25th scale Ford 240-300 inliner ???????? Wowza , I have owned several Econolines with this motor in it . I now drive a 78 with a 300 in it .I hope Mobius will also not leave the 75-79 guys out in the cold as the cabs actually shared a few tools . I can assure Mobius that BOTH trucks will be good sellers.............

I'm not a fan of Fords much at all, but this kit look like it will be way too nice not to own.

That's how you know it's good stuff. When even the non-Ford fans want it. :)

Any truck love for the Chevy and Dodge pickup fans coming down the pipe?

Wow! These are going to be just too cool.  Especially that six banger! The body looks great, and they got the windshield height right at the top. The old AMT truck was way off!

That windshield glass should be up there parallel to the side glass!

That's true Tom but you're comparing apples to potatos.

 

Different generation trucks, different cabs.

 

Seems a lot of people posting in this thread are under the impression that the AMT trucks are the same generation as the ones coming from Moebius ,, that are not the same generation. No body panels are the same.

 

I understand that Steve.  I was just pointing out that Moebius has their details right, better than old school kits.

Yep, '67-72 is the fifth gen (which some call a 'bumpside'), '73-79 is the sixth gen, which some call a ( 'dentside' or 'grooveside').   The two generations have some dirty bits in common, but the body and interior are different.
