....a '66 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible. We have '63, '64, '65, '67, '68(if you can find one), '69, '70, and even some later '70's. So, why not a '66??
....a '67 Ford Galaxie XL. We have Fords from the late '40's up to the '69 and '70, but no '67 or '68.
....a '66 Impala. And a '69. I've got every Impala from '58 to '65 and '67. Might as well throw in a '68 and some from the early '70's, too!
....a Ranchero from the mid-to-late '60's to go along with all the El Camino kits we have. One from the '70's would be interesting, also!

....a few more ideas from out there in forum land! How 'bout it, folks???

A '63 GT Hawk would be nice. I'd like to see a '65 Mercury Comet, too.
A new detailed kit of a late '70's Chevy, Dodge, or Ford pickup. Or how 'bout a late '50's pickup?

Bucky,

There was a 1968 Impala. Be prepared to pay a couple hundred if you can find it. Here's a '68 promo.

paul59,
I had the '68 Impala SS kit from MPC in 1968. If I remember right, it had a bubble top! I'd like to see it again. And hey, Wildrice, some of those you mentioned have been done before, too. Like to see them again, also!!
I have a 1986 Dodge Ram in the driveway, so a late eighties Ram would be nice. I believe these companies could do just as good with some of the above mentioned kits as they are with the toy-like stuff we see nowadays.

I would like to see:

1968 GTX convertible. This would be an easy build. All I would realy need is a grill and tail light panel. On the GTX it goes all the way across the trunk. The rest could be had from amt kits or amt could just tool up the grill, body, and interior.

1968 Super bee. I know that the Coronet R/T is avalible in resin and could easly be converted but it would be nice to see the Coronet rerelased or redune as a Superbee.

1970 Sport Fury. I just like this car.

1971 Chevelle rereleased from amt. They did make one but it is expensive. I finaly got one off ebay for $79. I have tried many times to get one and they have all gone for more than $120.

1972 Roadrunner rereleased also. I know they are also out their but I have a hard time buying mint unbuilt kits then building them. I prefer resin repops or a rerelease.

I know I could come up with more but that is off the top of my head.

Current projects: 69 Charger 500 Revell, 69 Grand Prix MPC, 60 Impala, 66 GT40, 70 AMX, 69 Camaro Pace Car.

I don't care what make they are, I would just love to see more four doors and wagons! I would prefer seventies through current models. In fact, any cars and trucks from the mid-seventies through the late eighties would be great. But not more Corvettes, Camaros and Mustangs.

I've never seen a '66 Charger convt. I had a '66 Coronet 500 convt. I guess it would be very similar. I always wondered if a Charger taillight panel and hideaway headlight grill would work. It might be cool to take the Revell Charger parts and put them on the '67 Coronet R/T body. Maybe I'll try that.

Another one I'd like to see is a '71-'73 Mustang convertible. And while I'm thinking, (if that's possible), how about a '71-'73 Cougar XR/7 convertible?

Hey Bucky, AMT's reissued The Cat Cougar XR7 has a convertible boot in it. I'm pretty sure it's a '71-'73, so it might be an easy conversion to a drop top.

Just reading some of the posts. Some very nice cars we would all like to see built. There were NO 66 or 67 Charger Convertibles ever built. Not even an experimental one. The charger rear light piece and grill would sure look good in a 67 Coronet ht. Hey how about cutting the roof off theCoronet and use the Charger rear and grill and voila, a 1 of 1...Iwould like to see some lesser models of some cars. Not just the hi line series that we get.Biscaynes, 330's Savoys, etc and how about a 60 or 61 Dodge Polara or Matador......Just my 2 cents worth. Take it for what its worth...........FARMER

Thanks for the info, eyeleveleast. I'll be looking for the Cougar kit. I didn't know that it had been reissued. I have an old kit that MPC had put out. I wonder if that kit has the boot in it? Now , if I can just remember where I put that kit. I only have 525 to look through.
By the way, Wayne Farmer has a great idea about the '60 Dodges. That year model Dodge had a very unique look. It could not be mistaken for anything else.
