I wonder if the drag versions of the Mustang and Cuda will be single version only or 2n1 kits.   IIRC, the '58 Corvette was available originally as a 'Pro Modeler' kit, then they did the 2n1 '59 variation of it (black on the box w/ flames).   IIRC, the '58 PM version had optional parts, but different ones than the '59.

The '58 had optional chrome reverse wheels w/ baby moons, the '59 had modern big-inch Torq-Thrusts.   The '59 also added some more modern parts like a radiator w/ electric fan and a modern fuel injection system.

 

The Sox & Martin will most likely be a one version kit, as that's typical for the Sox & Martin kits they done before.  The Mustang would probably be a 2 in 1, with stock parts that are different from the first kit (Pony wheels, perhaps?)

Bah, I'm holding out for this issue of the Datsun pickup:

I'd love to get those tires back into rotation.

  Given the choice, I'd rather have the chrome reverse and baby moons, although the TTs in the '59 kit were also very nice. Incidentally, the '58 also had a choice of intake setups, FI or dual fours with very undersized carbs.

59 still had the factory FI and dual carb parts as well. 

 

If I had to guess at this early stage I'd predict that this new edition will have the modern stuff from the 59, as that would make it different from the 1st issue.   

 

And I forgot to mention it, the up tops were different -  the 58 had a soft top and the 59 had a hard top.

Anyone able to confirm or deny if the Sox - Martin Cuda will have the six pack hood on it or not. ?

 

 

I have one done to fit the original MPC body and would rather not modify it to fit the new revell body

I would assume it does...the scoop style on the Johan kit didn't appear until '71, I think?

Hasegawa is re-releasing the Rallye 240Z! That is a nice kit. And the Revell Jungle Jim Dragster looks like the old Jeb Allen rail with new decals and I noticed the rear tires look to be one piece types. That would be nice.

The only major difference between the '58 and '59 were the chrome trim strips on the '58 trunk lid. That's why Revell molded the '58 with a separate trunk lid, to make it easier to do a '59 from the same tooling.

'58 had a different hood also..w/ louvers.  I assume there are some interior trim differences also.

Agreed Bill. I have the Johan 71 version, and this would be a great compliment to that one.

Looks like there are pics of the S&M '70 w/ chrome bumpers and with a body color bumper...multiple cars, I presume or differences through the season.

'58 had a different hood also..w/ louvers.  I assume there are some interior trim differences also.

Different interiors year-to-year are pretty much a given on early Corvettes, especially the quad-light C1's and every C2.  58 seats have vertical pleats, 59 are horizontal.

If you can't find one of the new tool (and frankly mis-labled Monogram even though it was a new Revell tool) '59 Corvettes for a decent price -- It took me about a year but I finally got a sealed one on eBay for $9.99 - then just hang out for a bit longer.  I would suspect that it's not too far up the reissue pipeline now that the '58 is finally seeing the light of day again.  Makes sense to run them both back-to-back while you have the one tool it shares parts with out and cleaned up already and the '62 Vette is fresh.
