\That Galaxie is long gone, as mentioned by John G of Round2, and I think it was mentioned somewhere several of the unique bits for the GT500 have been lost, too-- the blistered hood for sure. It wouldn't be terribly difficult for Round2 to substitute another full-sized Ford car or truck to pull it, though, and re-tool some of the Mustang's missing parts, however.

The '69 Galaxie has been reissued many times over the years, maybe 2004 was the most recent?

Correct, that Galaxie is still around. Heck, they could even use the 70 4 door as a tow vehicle.

I think the AMT '53 Ford pickup/Shelby 289 Cobra kit sold well, but the Piranha double kit appears to have been a huge dud. Granted, it's two very unique, oddball vehicles packaged together, so maybe apples-to-oranges? Hopefully the Cal Drag Combo is selling well, and Round2 has the '53 Ford Pickup/Mod Socker Hauler combo in the works, so it might be possible.

As for the Shelby, I think the only part missing is the hood, the other pieces were included in several releases I have.

I already have the twister Nova.... I'll just wait for the new Moebius gasser kit to come out....😉👍

The impending Moebius kits have me on something of a 1G Nova kick. I'm nearing completion on one AMT '62, and as soon as it's finished I hope to start right in on a second one. And then I want to bang out a Twister or Rat Packer pretty much OOB, and by that time we SHOULD have the new Moebius goodies. B)

 I must've been thinking of something else. I'll add John G's comments from 2015 to the combo kit topic.
