I am wondering if the JoHan Torino could be mated up to the Revell chassis.  It would take some doing, and an interior, but it would make a nice product for a resin caster.

 

The '76 is interesting, and if they make a nice body in the final version, I will probably grab a couple.  (One stock, one light commercial)  but a '72 would empty out my wallet and fill up my shelves!  I do hope Revell makes a good one.

The 'Dudes' Torino.......I always wanted to build this one....but between 4 doors, notch roof and nose too much work to convert a 72......but a 76 ????

Maybe a can do.

The rear bumper is same as a 72......

The Dude's car was a '73 Gran Torino IIRC...and the 4dr has a 4 inch longer wheelbase also.

Correct....it's a 73. But the 73 used the 72 rear bumper so we have that. Kinda remembered it had a longer WB.....5/32 of an inch I may just try and fake it.

Agreed! Not much work to make a '77 into a '78 so I could replicate my 1:1. Heck, I'd even send Revell any of the measurements or references that they would need!

I hope your right about a '72. I've love the real car from the first time I saw it previewed in the magazines of the day. That open "fish mouth" grille just looked right to me. The fastback is my favorite body style for that year Torino. But, I like the whole Torino line. All body styles looked good to me for '72. Even the plain low line, non "fish mouth", Torinos. Plus Mercury's Montego line up looked great that year too. And the dashboard, especially with optional gauge package looked cool too. And lastly, that year's Ranchero looked great too. A good year for Ford's mid size, redesigned, line of cars.

I can't wait until the S&H Torino comes out. My cousin bought new the last production serial numbered S&H Torino in '76. He owned it and hardlky drove it until he passed in 2006. After he passed I don't know what his wife did with the car. I want to build one to remember him by.
Also I grew up around the Montegos. My Grandfather had a '72 Montego MX Brougham 4 Dr, Black Cherry with a black interior and a 351 Cleveland under the hood. It stayed in the family until 2004 and I drove it. It was a beast. My grandfather did not have power assist brakes and it was scary trying to stop that thing. My Dad hadd a '73 MX Brouham, copper 2 Dr with white vynil and brown inserts and he put on magnum 500 rims. Sharp car but rust prone and it had a list of problems mechanically after it got rear ended. I would love to recreate my dad's car as well.

Revell's IT staff must be still on vacay...it's the 3rd and they still haven't updated the carousel on the main page (scrolling photos of new releases), still shows the August releases.

For this month's tentative schedule I'm showing the Yellow 2015 Mustang snapper, the Hot Rod Hydro (née Hemi Hydro), the Blue Bandito (née Blue Beetle), 1/24 Black Widow (released a couple of years ago under the SSP program, now it'll be in the regular lineup), and the aforementioned Camaro and Challenger prepaints to non-RPP shops.   It's always subject to change, but I'd expect them to update their site with more items as they get them into their warehouse.
