Does anyone know where to get a diecast model of our cars? There was a customline 1:32 scale on Ebay but it was sold before I could bid on it. Do they still make them?

The '54 Ford cars have been overlooked by Die cast company's over the years,not so with the '54 trucks.

This company offers a '53,,

I was planning to ask the same the same question here, since I collect modelcars.
I have looked around on the internet and stores here for a 54`, but only found 53`s.
I suppose they have chosen to make the 1953 because of Fords 50th anniversary that year ?
Have a few 1953 models, but would have loved to find a 54`for my collection :)

It's interesting to see the conspicous absence of a 54 car model.

I remember back in the 80's when Tom started the club....one of the main reasons for doing so was because the 54 Ford was almost always skipped by all the old car parts vendors. They'd run right up to 1953, skip 1954 and then resume with 1955. It was maddening.

It's gotten better since then (thanks in part, to this club) but you still see it from time to time.
