Why do they make a Thunderbolt in 1/24 and not 1/64 ? That would be a good seller.
anywho never heard of the 7 litre before, thanks.

Just in case you're not kidding :confused: the 7 Litre was a package for the 66 Galaxie. It started with the bucket seat XL and added as standard equipment the 428 4 barrel, 345 horse motor, power front disc brakes (first on a full-sized Ford), wood-grained steering wheel, special wheel covers and 7 Litre badges on the grille, front fenders, rear quarters, trunk and glove box door. All the other amenities offered in the 66 Galaxie were also offered, power drivers seat, power passenger seat with extending headrest and reclining, 4- speed trans, tape player, AC, speed control, vinyl roof, etc etc. The high performance 427 found its way into a few, less than 20 I believe, as well. :thumbsup:

There are quality 1:64 Tbolts made so I don't care if JL makes one ;)

Thanks for the pics. Brings back some serious memories of hot rodding mine in Huntington in the late 70's. Man I miss that car.

Wasn't kidding, thanks for more info. I know HW has some decent ones, I just thought that JL might get in the game, but word on the street is that the whole game might cancelled.

B, Ertl did a 1:64 Thunderbolt a few years back. I have a white one - great undercarriage detail. :cool:

Yatming did a '66 Galaxie ht back in the '80s..I have a couple of them, neat little diecast.

I'd love to see some of my favorite big Fords done in 1:64 and 1:18th--the '69/70 XL Sportsroof and convertible, and the '71/72 LTD ht and convertible.

I think I've seen a few of those Yatming 66 Galaxies around somewhere too :wave:





That long blue line is all Yatming Galaxies and I traded one for the 57 above.
