Plymouth Reliant wagon - I doubt it.   I was lucky to find a model of the 4 door.

Damn. I guess nobody wants models of the "boring" stuff!

Can't wait to grab a pair of these in two weeks anyway.

A relatively rare prototype, a 1977 Pinto Cruising Wagon (a side paneled station wagon with portholes) was part of the Motor Max Fresh Cherries Die-Cast Replicas series.

Two other models from the Fresh Cherries line that you might consider are the 1974 AMC Gremlin and Pacer.

A 1972 Chevy Vega Wagon was offered as a part of the Johnny Lightning Classic Gold Collectibles series.

There are models of Pintos (station wagon and coupe), AMC Gremlin and Pacer (also wagon and coupe) available in 1:25 or 1:24 scale as either kits, promos or diecasts. Some of those are quite rare and pricey.  But 1:24 to 1:160 would take a while lot of shrinking!  I also thing that some of those models were available in 1:64 scale, but their proportions might not be very accurate.

Already part of my die-cast model collection, the Motor Max Pintos (both the sedans and the cruising wagon) and the AMC Gremlins and Pacers were released in 1:64 and 1:87 scale.

Available in 1:64 scale from Greenlight Collectibles (i.e., as part of their Estate Wagons series), would also like to acquire some N-Scale versions of the 1981 and/or 1984 Ford LTD, 1985 Mercury Colony Park, 85 Country Squire, and/or 86 Crown Victoria station wagons.

Very reasonably priced, I really like Greenlight's line of 1:64 scale die-cast cars, boat and camping trailers, pickup trucks, recreational vehicles and SUVs.

Also available is a 1961 Plymouth Valiant 4 door:


Plus, a 1963-70 Ford N series cab ($3.00 ea)


Next is a 1966-67 Dodge Charger:


Also available is a 1966-77 Ford Bronco.  The spare tire is separate so you can mount it as desired:


Finally, a 2007-17 Ford Expedition.  I didn't open up the rear windows, as they are all privacy glass.  They should be
painted gloss black or a similar color:


As always, the vehicles are shown with the casting flash removed from the window openings for illustration purposes.

The updated product listing is below.

I really love the Charger and Ford Expedition from your August release.
I’ll try to place another order by the end of this year, hopefully by then there’s a few more post-2000 vehicles.
Keep it up!

The 61 Plymouth Valiant was the first car I owned. It had previously been my Grandmother’s from 1972 to 1975. It was a real POC by the time I was finished with it. But I did love it. Slant 6 and push button transmission. I guess I’ll have to get one even though it’s not my era.
