While putting the finishing touches on the 34 cars I am contributing to the next "loose" Bud Box, I was surprised that there was not a single Chrysler car out of 94 castings in the box. A quick check of Wyatt's site showed that Johnny Lightning only did three Chrysler castings, ever; the Atlantic show car, the PT Cruiser, and the 1955 C300.

Come on, RC2, give a little nod to this marque would you?

Folks, what Chrysler car would you like to see immortalized by RC2?
I'll start the ball rolling with this:



They can even do a Stock Car Legends version:

Buddy Arrington

Rick Baldwin

I`d like to see that one with about any other year 300 and imperial they can make.Of course with JL`s not 2.99 anymore and up to 4.24 I`d probally have to pass them all up until gas prices fall below $1.99 for a while

Thanks carnut2256 for the pics - your post made my day. I never knew that there were NASCAR Imperials . Those are too cool.

After browsing thru the Internet for awhile, I found a few Chryslers that I would like to see in 1/64 scale:

1948 Town & Country

1951 New Yorker

1957 Saratoga

1960 300 F

1961 New Yorker wagon

1963 Turbine

1965 300 L

1969 Three Hundred

If I could only pick one out of this line-up to be produced by JL, it would have to be the 1960 300 F, from the height of the Exner years. That car epitomizes the entire concept of "Chrysler" for me. My close second choice is the 1965 300 L by Elwood Engel. Thanks for asking.

I don't know how I overlooked this one, but now that I think of it, this is hands down the next Chrysler that JL should do. It was done in a very cheesey Maisto casting, but as the prettiest and most popular selling Chrysler in the last 30-40 years, it deserves to be done right:


My old girlfriend bought one of these, and we had a ball with it. I believe she even bought a newer version as well.

2 of my favorites are already on this list....The early 80s Imperial and 70 300H. I would also like to see any of the other letter series 300s (especially the 64 300K Convertible), any of the Town and Country wagons from the 60s and 70s, 1976 Cordoba, 1971 and 1974 Dart Swinger, early 70s New Yorkers and Newports.....I could go on and on........

Any Newports / New Yorkers from the 60's.
I believe Imperial was its own marque for awhile; I'd love to see some early to mid-sixties Imperials.
Since JL did the '59 Desoto, they might be able to tweak it a bit and get a Chrysler from that casting. Ertl, an RC2 company, did the '57 300C. Perhaps it can be re-issued under the JL name. You can get a Windsor from that casting as well as a Desoto.

As I have posted many times before.
The 76'-78' Plymouth Volare Road Runner & Dodge Aspen R/T and Super Coupe.

JL could get alot out of this casting.

I guess RC2 believes they would warm the pegs like GALAXIES!!!!!! :freak:

I almost forgot about the 1979 Fifth Avenue. Strange to think that this was one of Chrysler's first downsized models:



How about a razor sharp 1965 New Yorker:



and any of the great fuselage 1970s:

I forgot all about that 1979 Fifth Avenue! That is another one I'd really like to see.

I'm really suprised that a 70 Chrysler 300 hasn't been done. Everytime there is one of these posts, there seem to be alot of people looking for these. My neighbor had one when I was growing up, and I always thought it was one of the coolest looking cars! Hopefully, the power that be will seriously consider this one (not to mention the other great ideas already mentioned).
