Emailed Revell about all the rumors, here is the reply...

 

 

 

Hi,

Sorry, we cannot confirm any rumors. You will just have to stay tuned.

 

Regards, 
Ed Sexton 
Revell Inc.

 

 

They did not deny anything either....

I received a similar reply from Ed Saxton several months ago when I inquired about Revell possibly kitting the '57 Ranchero & a '57 Ford 2 door wagon.    hmmm. . .Here's hoping for either body style, but if they did one of them, the other would not be that difficult to do, as they share so many of the same parts.   

 

Frankly, I was pleased to receive a personal reply from Ed, and suggest that other modelers also contact him w/ their wish list(s).   Revell seems to be listening to us modelers, thankfully!

The way that's worded, sounds like good news to me!

99.9% sure they'll do a Ranch Wagon. Just get a feeling... ;)    Not as sure about a Ranchero, but I wouldn't rule it out.

See now, I'da guessed the Ranchero to have the broader appeal...

 

but eh, what do I know. Sign me up for greedy acquisitions of either or both.  :)

Check out what the original, un-chopped release(s) of Revell's multi-piece bodied '57 Rancheros are selling for on evilBay. . .Then consider how inaccurate that kit is, as it was based on Revell's even older Country Squir'se tooling.   I think that the Ranchero would sell extremely well, but I'd be just about as happy if they did a 2 door wagon instead.  

 

Back in the day, the 1:1  '57 Ranchero was a popular vehicle w/ customizers, and the best I ever saw was built by the late Dick Dean - perhaps, best known for chopping more '49-'51 Mercs than anyone else.  He built himself an extended-cab red & white '57 Ranchero that could have rolled straight off of a Dearborn assembly line; it looked that well proportioned, and Ford probably would have sold a ton of them if it had been an option in '57.

Long roofs are the shizzle now, well, they've been gaining momentum for a few years.

It's not nice to tease, Brett.  :angry:  :lol:  :P

 

Which one?:

Who am I kidding, any would be fine...but I'd vote for #3.  ^_^

 

Technically, the new '57 Ford 300 already has already spawned two variants, so a Ranchero, Ranch Wagon, and Country Squire are probably (hopefully) all still in play. This could go on for a decade, and I kinda hope it does.  ;)

 

Oh, I see where you're going with this now, and Revell even has the wheels for this one in the '62 Vette kit:

I would take ANY of those. I think most of you saw what I did with my first 57 so I am sure I could do these up!

So I gotta thing for Junior Stockers...  That's why I want a Chevy Handyman as well. 

 

There will be more kits based on the 57 Ford tooling, you can take that to the bank!

You got it bad:lol:  :D

Your boldest prediction yet!  :P  I'm thinking something along the lines of what Revell has done with their Chevy Tri-Five series, though maybe not twenty years in length. The Ranchero and Country Squire seem like obvious potential versions to me, but maybe a Fairlane 500, both in hardtop and retractable hardtop versions, too?

Revell couldn't possibly leave the uptop out of the kit with this one.  :P

The ones with the swoopy side trim are known as a Del Rio Ranch Wagon, Ford's answer to the Nomad.  Only made in 57 and 58.  I believe the extra gold-anodized panel was an option, and not indicative of trim level.
