I'm most curious about who made the creme/beige '56 Lincoln Continental(?) friction model (promo?), but I don't recall seeing the '58(?) Ford Ranchero before, either. '60(?) T-bird in the middle?

The Ranchero is a '59

The T-bird is most likely a '60 ( based on the 6 tail lights rather than 4)

 

sorry, no clue on the makers.

And there is a '56 Continental Mark II. I had one of those  but sold it for parts. I did keep the taillights which are little more refined than on the example you posted.

The 1960 Thunderbird and 1956 Lincoln Continental Mk II are AMT promo's.  The '59 Ranchero promo was made by Product Miniatures Company (PMC) as both an assembled acetate plastic promotional model, AND as a screwdriver-assembly STYRENE plastic kit.

Man, I'd sure like to find an un-warped Continental like that to pull a set of molds...

I'd love to see a resin kit available!  My friend customizes 1:1 Lincoln hot rods.

Hmmmm...what I'd REALLY like to do is pull a set of molds from a cherry 1:1. That's such a beautiful car, I think a hand-built, mild-custom, composite bodied, tube-chassis, independently suspended and luxed-out cost-no-object re-pop might find a market.

Yeah!  Only problem is:  Of course #1 would be finding one that hasn't warped.  But, second, that promo is not quite 1:25 scale--the MkII is a very large car--about the size of a Buick (the Promo is definitely undersized).

 I think you kinds sorta answered my next question. I've seen the SC Miller "thing", and the 1/32 Revell kit, but wondered why there isn't a resin 1/25 offering.
