And, that's it?!? No other information on tentative rerelease? Nothing else except a picture of a box? Posts like this are a waste of people's time.

It's just a reissue...probably 1st quarter 2021...nothing to get upset about...

I know that this would be a reissue. What annoys the hell out of me is when somebody post a cryptic picture like this with no further information with which to place it in proper context. After all, this is the "Car Kits & Reviews" section, not the cool box art forum.

I would be happy to see that kit back on store shelves.

I'd prefer the '55.

I'm not fond of the '56 car's looks. Chevy never should have "Improved" the '55, IMHO.

It's clear to most this is a near-straight reissue of the California Wheels version, for which there are reviews here:

New decals, box art, Bob's your uncle.

Near straight, except this one can also be built stock. I hope Hobby Lobby gets some in. I could use a couple.

What is the source for this?

Revell is not good at doing 'Coming Soon'.

It IS a bit of a teaser...

If confirmed, I consider it a bit of good news.

I owned this one back in the day! Actually owned it twice but that’s a long story. And I only have one picture. You can see the back corner of my 65 Barracuda and tail end of my 66 Valiant in the driveway.

I do have to build a copy of this car one of these days!

I dunno, old-school scallops and big "hot wheels" don't seem to go together...kinda like wearing neon-yellow sneakers with a double-breasted suit.....:unsure:

Hopefully , that guy at George's Garage is awaiting the recycling man to come along and buy those wheels . In the meantime , he's installing a trad paint scheme .

Don't think that I've not seen exactly the outfit you've described --- I grew up in a Los Angeles suburb ! Haha !

"I'm not fond of the '56 car's looks. Chevy never should have "Improved" the '55, IMHO."

I like the '55 better overall than the '56, but think the radiused quarter panel wheelhouse opening on the '56 & '57 looks way better than the ones on the '55, though it was done right on the Nomad.  My folks had a '57 Bel Air hardtop, so that's my favorite Tri-Five since I remember it well.

Ya the '56 was the ugly middle sister of the tri 5s to many people. I still think it's the best of the three models. Don't get me wrong, I like the '55 and the '57 just fine but for me the '56 is the best of them all. I have never built a low ridder '56 and only a few others. The big hoops will not be used but some nice chrome reverse wheel with pin wall whites . There will be some metal flake and pearl as well.

I agree, the 56 is the best looking one of the bunch!

I do wish that Revell would do a 56 Bel Air hardtop, and convertible based on their 55s. Those would go great with their 56 Nomad, and while they're at it they might as well do a 57 Nomad to go with all the rest.
