11162 1931 Ford Tudor Rubelite Red $ 115.00

12251 1931 Ford Model A Coupe Rubelite Red $ 115.00

12741 1931 Ford Pickup Hessian Blue $ 110.00

12821 1948 Chrysler Town and Country Sumac Red $ 120.00

12941 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk Tiara Gold $ 120.00

13121 1949 Ford Woody Meadow Green $ 120.00

13241 1939 Chevy Woody Permanent Red $ 120.00

The not so good news,

The price has jump significantly and they are the exact same colors they were done in before. That I don't understand. Change the colors and have a chance to sell one to a collector that may already have one of the lod ones, like me. I have everyone one of these.

Here is the 48 Chrysler in Cream. Having dog leg hinges and very little detail underneath, I'm not sure they will sell that well at that price point.

Originally they made a new version and a weathered version. I am not sure what the new one will be.

As indicated in the first post, they are reissuing a few of the models from several years ago. They will be the same color as before and should be available by late summer.

I sent feedback to them that they need to change the colors (excluding the camper) if they have hope in selling these, we'll see how that goes.
