Since Round2 has been induced to reintroduce the classic AMT 1960 F100 pickup kit (thank you Mr Goldman) it seemed to be a good time to throw in some pics and details of this whole generation of Ford trucks to help inspire some creative building.

And as cool as these Fords are, I really dig the Mercury M-Series versions..

I can't be the only one who's going to build one of these kits as a Mercury..

Can't always trust google image labels; the last two are actually '60 Mercs. Here's a '59...

Hopefully the other grills are a possibilty with this new tooling of the original '60.

Thanks for the correction, as I really wasn't too sure on the years..

I seen both the '59 and '60 model year being attributed to one of those trucks in the SAME paragraph!

Lol..the internet.. 

I was only sure of one thing, and that is that they sure were cool lookin!

Those are really good looking old trucks..I think I've only seen maybe a half dozen '57-60 Ford pickups in my lifetime..that panel truck would be neat also (maybe a resin caster or 3D crafter will offer one). 

Several years ago I picked up a resin '57 panel truck, maker forgotten.

Very close to these kits hitting the shelves now! I'm excited about the '60 kit in particular because of the possibilities of completely different build opportunities. I confident the aftermarket will kick with the '57-59 variations when they see these kits fly off the shelves.  F500-F 600 variations require front fender to be enlarged. Hopefull Dan-Cip models of Romania will do extra heavy "Super Duty" version ( auto haulaway photo), in the same high quality of their '60's heavy F and N series offerings.

Here's what I want to build with it.

I used the Frontier Resin Big Job as a starting point, it does need some tweaking and massaging, but, easier than starting with a cab only. Would like to see a higher end 3d printed '57-'60 extra heavy duty in the future though. The ALF body would speed things up too for a pumper.
