    Revell didn't make a lot of "civilian" 1/64 models, but what they made were of an excellent caliber.

    A popular series that ran for a few years was tied to Lowrider magazine. And while most of the models issued were from about 1958 and up, they did sneak in two earlier models. The 1939 Chevy Sedan Delivery is itself an unusual model to cover, but this 1947 Chevy 2 door sedan is a highly unusual choice. Were it not for the Lowrider Community continuing the life of some of these '40s era cars, it is unlikely this model would have come to be.

    Happy New Year!!! I hope 2023 is a better year for all of us.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Nice! I know I had at least one of those but not sure if I still do - really need to get back to reorganizing the collection and going through the boxes of the stuff that has been packed away waiting for me to get back to around to it.

        I forgot all about Revell making a '47 Chevy!! It sure looks great! Wonder where all the tools to produce these are today.

          I've seen the Revell '39 Chevy delivery, but always pass because it is a low-rider. The same for this '47, both beautiful castings, just wish they'd been done as factory stock vehicles. I occasionally add a vintage-period hot rod to my collection, but pass low-riders with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions.

            Fair enough. The only other '47 Chevy that comes to mind is the Authenticast:

            While this dates back to when the car was new, by today's standards it is significantly lacking.

            I've lamented many times in the past about the lack of 1940s cars, by any maker. Just not that many out there. So I can look past the lowrider bit, although that style has grown on me over the years.

              Click image for larger version  Name:	image.png Views:	0 Size:	50.8 KB ID:	532240​ Hot Wheels Wiki shows a recent, if you count 2004 as more recent, casting of the 47 Chevy Fleetline, and the silhouette is quite similar to the Revell, but the details on the Revell set it apart and above. The Revell came out late 1990s, so 5 or 6 years before the Hot Wheels. This was about the same time as Ertl American Muscle 1/64, and HW 100%. Johnny Lightning was a player too, but none of these others covered the 47 Chevy. I don't recall one in the 100% line. There is a '41 Chevy Woodie Wagon by JL that has some nice variants.

                    I like fleetlines, so seeing such a detailed 1/64 is awesome, and I'm really impressed with my 4 1/24 Revells, and it's good to see the 1/64s don't disappoint

                      I really like the mid/late ‘40’s slope backs, no matter what make. I’ve tried to keep up with the HW one, I have a few Jadas, and I think I have one Revell. I, like John, really need to sort through my sundry boxes and try to organize. I do know I’ll be selling off probably hundreds sometime this year (hopefully soon). And I agree - Revell did the best job.
