Revell just did a re-issue of their '76 Chevy van kit, 1/25th scale. Includes the full custom parts, grille, bumpers, flares, full interior etc.

I think it's only available for pre-order at the moment. At least everything I'm finding says pre-order.

It's showing "In Stock" now.

Wow! Model cars are $30 now?
As a teenager, I built them all the time with almost no budget.

Yes sir, thanks inflation. They were averaging about $25 last time I bought one a few years ago and I thought that was nuts. I remember buying them for $8-12 depending on popularity when I was younger. Probably cheaper than that in the 80s, but my pop bought them for me then.

Maybe I can sell my collection of old models and parts and buy a brand new van. Hmmmm..

lol

I got a couple of them from my distributor and put on eBay. Model prices are up both due to inflation, cost of production, and because most of them now need to be licensed by the manufacturer. It also depends on how many parts come in it.

This kit is a pretty straight up reissue of the old Car Craft California Cruiser with new artwork. They come through with just round clear stickers to seal the box so I peeked at one and the chrome tree is showing it's age, a lot of flash particularly on the wheels and on the steering wheel.

In researching the history of this kit I found it's been reissued direct a couple times, they did a Hardy Boys TV version with a slightly different interior, and there are variants which share some but not all the parts including a 4x4 van kit and another that is customized to somewhat resemble a big rig cab, no idea if that's based on a real thing or not. It cleverly uses the scoop hood with a tall truck style grille shaped to match.

I built a yellow Chevy Good Times van model kit back in the '70s. It had a removable roof, and a bed with other things molded into the floor. I don't remember what happened to mine and have yet to see one for sale anywhere.
