Hi as the title states is there any resin kits based off the Moebius Chryslers? e.g. Convertibles, wagons, Newyorkers, sedans, customs etc?

 

I have found Jimmy Flintstone now has a custom Wagon but are there any others? I would really like to find a stock wagon. 

 

Many thanks

Greg

I'd love a stock wagon as well, even a 4 door hardtop New Yorker would be fantastic. I am not building my Moebius kit on purpose, just waiting for a nice resin conversion to pop up. All we can do is hope it does.

Especially surprising considering how many resin bodies that have come out for the Moebius Hudsons.

Sorry, but not a fan of JF products. They're ok for the price I guess . But I would rather pay more for a better product

Some of Flinstones stuff is decent, some is not. The wagon hackjob in the link is just plain UGLY.  I surely think they would get more sales out of the tool if they had done a stock station wagon.

Some of the resin stuff and factory plastic bodies for the old JoHan '55/56 Chrysler products fit the Moebius chassis- the DeSoto body fits the Moebius Chrysler chassis and floor almost like it was made for it. If you spread out your search for stuff meant to go with JoHan kits that might increase your chances.
