Moebius 1968 Mercury M100 Announcement


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Well, time to unleash the giant kaiju beaver we've been keeping tucked away for a bit now, and take a little trip to the GWN, eh?

Here's a project that's been ticking over in the back of my head for a few years now.  I blame Jalopnik really.

Coming soon to the Moebius Models range, is kit # 2740, a 1968 Mercury M100 Pickup.  Retail price will be $35.99

Final box art still being finished up, so here's a little vision of what I'm sure Canada looks like.

Enjoy!

Just make this the box art!

Although, it's missing both a moose and a Tim Hortons.

Judging by the centre caps is it safe to assume that both RWD and 4x4 versions are forthcoming? 🤞🤞🤞

These are the replacement hubcaps on the regular chrome sprue, and will be showing up on other Ford pickups as they get re-run.  We put the 4X4 fronts on there to give people the choice, even though they are not specifically for the Mercury.

It's probably not something I will buy, but I have a lot of appreciation for the fact that your company is tooling up a new variant of this kit. It's such a great, relatively cheap way to maximize the potential of an existing mold.

I love seeing the CF-105 Avro Arrow in the cartoon!

I really like the Mercury Truck.

Alberto, Maybe you can build a Prototype Mercury CHP Heavy Enforcement Unit from 1968. Be a nice Whiffer!

A Very nice nod to our brothers to the north. 

Now I hope it has a Sass Jordan and Rush along with other Canadian rocker bumper sticker included.

I'd go with this one but they'd have to include several little 1/25 cases of Jack for in the back. 😁

[BTW, that's not a slam, they were my favorite band and I regret never seeing them live before Doug passed.]

Would be nice if the hood and tailgate and grill and Mercury parts would be available separately.

MAD resin did a tailgate and emblems for the 65/66 trucks; the gate works on the 67/68 mercs as well. Grills are the same as Fords for all sixties Mercs; here's a great chance to improve the existing 68/69 grill and make it less toylike.

That's really cool and the last year of production. 🍁

Production on those ended in the late spring of 1968... here's a good link for info: https://www.fordification.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35331
