A 1970 (not 1969) GTO Judge Ram Air IV hardtop or convert is at the very top of my suggestion list for new muscle car era kits, and has been communicated to the model companies accordingly.
It sure seems like with the topics Revell has been doing that it would be a logical choice for them. And it would be cool to see Moebius extend from their present 1965 model year limit to 1970.
If we got a 1970, one could reasonably expect a 1971 GTO Judge derivative, and later on, a 1968 and 1969 version (the latter two obviously requiring a new bodyside tool, but largely carrying over the rest). I am picking the 1970 to start with as that is the biggest gap in present/past lineups, and in my view would probably have the largest initial commercial appeal. Once that kit is tooled and paid for, the derivatives become affordable on less volume.
But as of right now, I personally know of no plans in that direction from the model companies...TIM
Your reply is insightful and I fully understand your logic.
Certainly the '70 GTO is one of the modeling communities missing links in the Pontiac muscle car lineup however; since 1969 was the introduction year of the Pontiac GTO "The Judge" model it would be a highly desirable subject for a number of car modelers.
And yes, I concur that it would be cool to see Moebius extend from their present 1965 model year limit to 1970. Maybe they would take a run at releasing a '69 The Judge Pontiac GTO..I do believe this particular model year of the GTO will be financially profitable...in my very humble option.
Do you have a COPO number on that? It would probably be 955X or 956X. I've never heard of a COPO '69 Biscayne. I believe the 427 was available in the '69 Biscayne as RPO (Regular Production Order), just check the box when ordering, no big deal.
I do believe the 427 equipped '69 Biscayne wasn't a factory C.O.P.O. car.
If I`m correct, it was another Baldwin Motion Dealership car.
This was Motions bargain priced super-car offering the most bang for the buck, plus the element of surprise...a true street sleeper in every respect.
