It looks sealed ? maybe in resin ?

Finally it's probably too small to build my custom C10 Sunoco transporter

Nice idea ! i want one




I've pre-ordered three of them; one to stay as a Ford, one to become a Dodge (using the Anson/JRL chassis), and the other to become a Chevy (using the Anson/Ertl chassis).

Anyone interested in two Ford chassis?
With the ACME track record of such things, wait a little while and they will fit new cabs to suit your requirements.
I think the ramp body is generic (also in real life) so it won't be too inaccurate to go this route.
And the underside (sump) of a Ford/GM/Chrysler is likely to be roughly the same shape - just painted a different colour...... :>)

ACME has been fortunate to acquire licenses for certain molds, I'm not convinced that they will pull it off for GM or Chrysler trucks.

I have plenty of both in inventory, and the ability to stretch their chassis to fit the necessary wheelbase.

But we'll see.

If anything, I'll have all three of the Ford versions at a dealer price.

How does it work in the US for designs over 25 years old?
We have highlighted (in other threads) that making scale copies of classic cars over a certain age seems not require royalties - or perhaps it's copyright rules.
Witness the number of Ferrari models that have been produced since the Maisto/bBurago deal took it away from Hotwheels.
That's my understanding of the situation anyway, I suspect it's all a bit of an unexploded minefield - I don't claim to be an expert on the subject.   :dunno:

Okay, I only ordered one of those; however they will never produce a Dodge version, nor one from a crew or club cab chassis.

I'll have to give way to your greater understanding of such things, I am only familiar with the COE Dodge.
Even though I have a vague recollection of such small Dodge trucks being available in RHD.

Between Anson, JRL, and Ertl using the same molds, there are quite a few Dodge chassis available.

Anyone know anything bout this Mustang?
I want a 69/70 Boss 302, but am not at all impressed with what is on the market at the moment.
For me a TransAm racer is the most desirable, but if a 'street' version is good enough - and at the right price, I will grab one.

It's certainly the "old" Highway61 mold sold as Acme / Gmp, like the Hemi Cuda
I want a nice 69 mustang but i can't find the Highway61, this one is probably the solution.

The Coronet is looking good though I wish they would have decided to do a steel wheels/hub cap version. Hopefully Acme will do more of these Highway 61 models in stock form.
