Honestly the fairmont ltd package is ok by me, the very first car i bought was an 80 mont like the one in the picture, not a cop car though, and I wouldnt want the police xtras with it, base model. Some people would bash me on this but a 95 escort 4 dr notch back and a 92 escort wagon would be right up your ally, for cad and injection molding; nobody has those out. Me Im just getting into casting and am sourcing bodies and part to build my first resin job. 

I think its a unique idea, and could have a market for crowds of family oriented people or people who have owned non modeled late model cars. Alot of honda, mitusubishi, toyota, and acura owners would love you.

Good luck

The Jeep Cherokee,

The Fairmont.

& the Polara.

I just don't understand why,not one model company ever made a Cherokee Sport.I own a 2000,they're great trucks.Why doesn't Revell try it already?I finally bought an RC Cherokee,but of course it's just the body.It'll take a bit of time to put together.Ive said this before,but I also would really like to see a 72 Fury NYPD car.The two hide away headlights.Some models didn't have them blacked out.Anyway,I just think those cars would be great if they were ever rereleased.

1970 Ford LTD Galaxie should fit with a scale 1/2" move on the chassis axle. The interior probably fits too. I'll check when the body is done. 

While the LTD chassis may very well fit the big Dodge, from a correctness standpoint, it would not be the right one, due to the fact that MOPARs have the torsion bar front suspension.  Of course, I'm sure most all of the great model-builders here know this, and it may only matter to the sticklers and rivet counters, HAHAHAHA!!!

Pardon me, if this has already been mentioned. I just did a sleepy-eyed scan of this thread! LOL

The other problem with that is the LTD is body on frame, while the Mopar C-bodies were unibody.  Totally different architecture.

I thought from what I read of the auction was that the Ford interior was being supplied, and a ‘68 Chrysler 300 style chassis? The firewall definitely looks like the one from the ‘68 300 or ‘68 Fury Cop Car. In any case, if it’s the ‘68 300 Chassis, it will be somewhat correct, if very basic. I would think the builder would be better off using the chassis (or two) from a Revell ‘68-‘70 Charger or AMT ‘71 Charger and modifying to suit.

Regardless, I would really like one of these. It looks great!  I’m hoping for a ‘71 like was mentioned before, preferably so I can make a ‘70 out of if.
