I would love a Kaiser and buy one or more in a heartbeat, but I'm not sure that they would sell well, but then I guess the same could be said of their bold move with the Hudsons. I would think that a good move on their part would be a 61 Ventura 4 door hardtop or Catalina station wagon. Equip the wagon with a realistic trailer hitch for hauling the 2 door hardtop to the drags. I could also see a Desoto variant off of their 55/56 Chryslers.
What I don't understand is why we can't get a 58 Ford? I really appreciate the 57s, and thank both Revell and AMT for their offerings and variety, but I can't believe that I'm alone in wanting the "forgotten" Ford. I would love it in a station wagon version.
It would probably be easiest to get them to build something on an existing model. One thing I would love to see is a 58 Ford which both Revell and AMT have the beginnings for. A 51 Ford Woody would also be a welcome model, and could be based off of AMTs 49 or 50 Ford. For the bowtie crowd, AMT could consider 68/69 full size Chevy wagons from the 67 or 70 that they now have, and for the Mopar people they could give thought to a 57 or 59 Plymouth wagon from the 58 Plymouth. Moebius, how about a Desoto wagon from your 55/56 Chrysler or a wagon from your proposed 61 Pontiac? By making a year just off of an existing mold, they can come up with a brand new product with minimal expense. I have very few expectations of ever seeing these things materialize, but it's fun to dream.
That's some beautiful detailing. You've got a lot of good load suggestions, and I could see it having a combination of some of them. This would be interesting with a load from a site that's being cleared for construction. The Hudson keeping company with some foundation material and other assorted debris that's been loaded onto it and headed to something like a landfill. What a sick thought though; a Hudson convertible,even in that bad of condition, being used for landfill.
