Well, the next step should, or must be an Imperial.

I hope you're right. I'd be very happy with that choice. It would be a thrill if they did the limo or 4-door sedan.

I can only hope.

How about going phantom, and do a wagon

That would be very cool!

 

If anyone would have the "guts" to do it, Moebius would be my guess.

That's wouldn't work, given the 50 year difference...

 

Anyway, maybe one of the resin casters will tool up a '55 or '56 New Yorker wagon...

What about a DIY? Anyone knows if the Chrysler and Plymouth wagons shared the roofs? If yes, then the roof could be taken from an R&R '56 plymouth wagon as a start. Conversion to Newyourker (or whatever the wagons were) trim still to be done though.

Got my grubby paws on one today, these are now shipping to your favorite hobby shops and retailers. 

 

Not much different from the '55 300 (just like in real life), so I just snapped some quick pics of the new parts (body and rear trim).  Pleased to see that the headlights were re-done to incorporate the body-colored part of the headlight bezels as part of the body molding, not as separate chrome parts like on the '55. 

 

Apologies for the poor cell-phone pics, it's all I have with me at the moment.

That does look nice.

 

Maybe Santa will leave me a nice surprise in a couple of weeks.

From the pictures, it looks to me that the taillights are all chrome. 

 

If so, that's a disappointment.

I think they're the same as what what Dave Metzner showed earlier in this topic, with separate clear lenses.

No, they have separate lenses in red for the tailights and clear for the backup lights. Just forgot to take a pic.

There may be more new parts to this kit than I thought at first, there's a bunch of parts with a "B" after the part number, including all the parts I know are new. I don't have a 55 to compare it to.

Brett,

 

Glad to hear it!  

 

 

I should have known better ~ I can't imagine Moebius taking a shortcut like that with such a great kit!
