New "COUPE " from Galaxie ltd ?

Recommended Posts

That would be fantastic. Galaxie puts out great products. They are not as prolific as other companies, but those kits have nothing envy Tamiya et al.

A coupe version of the '48 Chev? Or something a bit more out of the blue...? :rolleyes:

Well, I guess they are known for their '46-48 Chevys . . .

When Gary originally did the '48, he had it engineered in such a way that it could be used as the basis for a '41 at a later point in time, from what I recall. So....if that coupe is on the horizon, wouldn't it be killer if it was a '41 instead of a '48? (The '41 Chevy was probably the single most beautiful pre- WWII Chevy of all time, at least in my humble opinion.....TIM

Art,

Can you tell us what model year the coupe will be? I would love a '41 Chebby Coupe!

I would say Art is just guessing, much like the rest of 'us' here. We have all heard the rumblings, and are wondering what they are up to. Well, Art, care to clue the class in? In Drag Racing, this is what's known as 'Put up or shut up'.

If you know Art....your outta line. If Art posts it...take it to the bank.

(check Arts credentials...they speak for themselves.)

Other boards are full of this stuff. If we can't share information here what's the use in posting . especially the "Na, na, na, I know a secret" kind of stuff?

Now for the " I can't tell you because the manufactures have sworn me to secrecy excuse." it gets old.

"(Check Arts credentials... they speak for themselves.)" then let Art speak.

If that blue coupe is a '41 Chevy, then I'd like to get the kit.

I don't know Art's credentials. Where would I look?

Whale,

NOT guessing! I know the designer of the Galaxie '48 Chevy kits pretty well (and he was the designer of the legendary Aurora Racing Scenes in the 1970's, and then headed up product development at MPC from 1977 until MPC was sold to Ertl in 1986, then opening his own design firm mostly devoted to high-end diecast models, including NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and dragracing motorcycles.

He's been supplying me with tidbits of info on the Galaxie Chevy coupe for better than a year now--and the guy is most credible.

Interesting that it's taken them so long to follow up to the two 48 Chevy kits..those came out, what, 15 years ago?

Never had a Galaxie kit. They any good?

No. More like 'great'. B)

My only misgiving about the Aerosedan and Sedan Delivery is they aren't Fords. (Right, Mike? ;) )
