What's next from Moebius - How about a 70 F-100 4x4 and a 65-66 F-100

Recommended Posts

Model Car Garage makes a P/E set for the Moebius 1967-72 Ford F-100:

1967-1972 Ford F-100 Pickup Detail Set

If they make a set for the 1966, maybe they could include the Mercury badging; or an entirely different set specifically for the M-100.

That's a cool set. Mercury stuff should be do-able. (Is that a word?)

Over on the spotlight forum, Steve A makes the best set of 67/68 Merc decals I've seen yet. For the '65/'66 Mercs, all that would be needed would be the fender name plates...

as the front letters and tailgate letters are the same size from '65-'68. Ford merely added extra tabs to the '65/'66 Ford letter piece to make it work on the Mercs.

If the Merc letters were to be done in photoetch, it might be a good idea to include the '62-'64 and '65-'68 front letters, the '65/'66 side nameplates and the '63/'64/'67/'68 cowl/hood plates (same design). Maybe even include the hood and tailgate letters from the fifties Mercs as well. Go big or go home  :lol:

Not surprised. I placed my order within a couple of hours of him posting this on his website and he told me it was going to be three weeks minimum before he was going to ship. Good thing is he communicates with his customers and his product never disappoints.

 

I got my set today...looks great at first glance.

I didn't realize there was a Ranger option available for '66:

Bucket seats and console were available options.  More good stuff for the aftermarket to make for these kits! LOL

Has anybody in the aftermarket mentioned making any Mercury conversion parts for the '65-'66 Ford pickup?

I think these are for a 1967 according to the side emblems.

Those side emblems are the same for 67/68 and are also used on the 63/64, attached to the hood. The mercury lettering is black for 67/68 and red for 63/64.

The decals look like they may have improved from the first set of his that I saw ^_^  I believe they were made for the '67 used for pulling Elliot's racecar.

Real trucks have full floating axles! We are very fortunate to have  quality aftermarket vendors like Fireball! Received the conversion kit today, it is excellent!

A Ranger would be pretty easy to do. The seats were just 65/66 Mustang seats and the console was from a 64/65 Falcon. The door panels and steering wheel were just the standard custom cab parts. The only external identification is the insert that says "Ranger" instead of "Twin I Beam". That could be done with a decal.

I got my order from Fireball today, the quality is unbelievable! The detailed instructions are better than any kit instructions and the resin casting is better than most model kits! I am so excited to get started on building mine!

X2!  Got mine yesterday. Stellar quality resin! Well worth the money to build a proper highboy. Thanks Fireball!
