63-71 Wagoneer would be really nice. Would not mind a 64 Studebaker Daytona Wagonaire either.

Any '64 Studebaker would be cool. The last major big facelift Studebaker ever did to its cars. And a great one at that. The last year for Studebaker's own engines, hardtops, convertibles, and Hawks. Canadian built only Studebakers in '65. So only sedans and wagons with Chevrolet/McKinnon engines after '64. So 1964 gets my vote for the above reasons.

I agree that '63 Wagoneer would make for a cool kit. Add a nice set of realistic woodgrain decals for the sides, and I think you'd have a winner of a kit. I can picture one painted a medium blue, white roof, and the woodgrain sides.

I would definitely buy a couple of the 63 Wagoneers now that would look great with a snow plow or a trailer behind it..

Funny - Couple of years ago I saw one of those in what looked like original unrestored (but good) condition at a local supermarket parking lot (used as a grocery getter). ;)  Talking about unique cars!

The 63 Wagoneer  would be a great choice. You could get a lot of millage out of the majority of the tooling. Later model Wagoneers, Cherokees, J-20 pick ups.

this.

That's why I included it in my fake box art.
Not only could early and late versions of the Wagoneers, Grand Wagoneers,  two-door Cherokee Chiefs, and Pickups, be done with relatively little tooling effort,
but also this legendary movie tie in:

Even the people who think wars are nice but don't last long enough could be kept happy:

Would love an old Wagoneer kit.; 

 

However, a kit of an XJ Cherokee would blow my mind. I'd buy at least a couple instantly, cost be damned. As a former owner of a 1993 Sport model, that I drove trouble free for 12 years and over 400,000km; I cannot speak enough to how much I love these things.
