There has to be a signature model somewhere in this set. When the Chevy Trucks series was released, the always-popular ’83 Squarebody Silverado was the first to go. Same with the Mopar set. You had to be the first there to get your hands on the Dodge Power Wagon, which for the first time was released outside of a premium set.
But this Ford set? Like all of these releases, there are some good models and some duds, but what is the must-have? If you go by the Silverado, it is hard to pick, as there isn’t a model in this set on par with the popularity of the ’83. If the Texas Drive ‘Em took a slot, it most certainly would be the one. But there is an equivalent to the Power Wagon. The Ford Bronco gets its first non-premium release, but like the Power Wagon retains its metal base.
Unfortunately it doesn’t look quite as nice. Still, though, metal base?
My pick? The Ranchero. Damn it’s good-looking. Watch the video and pick yours. Enjoy.
