    They seem endless. Very popular among collectors. Nice picture, thanks.

      That is a great picture of an equally matched vehicle.
      Due to the recent budget cuts,
      the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
      current state of the economy, the light at the end
      of the tunnel has been turned off.

        I agree, they seem to come forever.

          We talk about them that way but I bet money M2 Machines has done over a hundred of the 1956 Ford.

            Everybody does it with some castings. If they continue to sell, why not? I like these little trucks but I'm running out of room. You might see me on "Hoarders" someday.

              The Chevy people love that truck and honestly, she is a great-looking truck. I love the basic conservative looks.

                  It's funny now how "modern" I thought the '81 models were with the rectangular headlights. When you see them side by side, it's really evident how precious little they changed. AW has really nailed this casting and are more than getting their money's worth. I am still amazed that many stores are still selling this series at $4.99 (while WalMart just raised them to $5.47 - still a fair price to me).

                    The only Chevy I ever had (IRL) was my '65 pickup....no "C10", no "Silverado", 'other' designation I was ever aware of. I wish someone would make a 1/64 of that ol' light blue pickup, for memory's sake. (I haven't tried to find one, but if I saw one in a store, I'd bring it home. Mine wasn't a stepside, which I would have preferred, but I bought it from a coworker/friend when it was just 10 years old, and drove it another 10-15 years before I sold it for salvage.)

                      Perhaps my only quip would be lack of side mirrors and no long bed versions from AW. Sorta funny how back in the day only Tomica/MB and off brand companies (Yatming/Welly) did square body bowtie trucks. Then within the last few years AW and Greenlight cover them with astounding success.

                        I’m not a “truck guy”, but these are fun. Can’t beat the details for the price.

                        Even without including the JL Zingers (and chase versions) AutoWorld is already approaching 100 variations of these things with several model years yet to debut.

                          I only have about twenty but mine are stock versions, none lifted or customised.

                            If I see one, it’ll come home with me. I like that color combo.
