I thought you talking about another rig.

What are the chances for a $20 jeep?

just needs some miniature budweiser cans in the back and it'd be perfect!

They stopped making this kit, so it actually is rare. Go figure. I wouldn't pay that much for one, but that's because I already have one as well as a Pink Poison version, too.

About eight years ago I bought an 84 Wagoneer on eBay for $26.00 yes that's twentysix dollars. It diddn't have an engine or trans but everything else was there including all the body steel (no rust). It did however cost $400.00 to ship from Oaklahoma.

They stopped making it in '81 I think. I got one, but they're on Ebay all the time for $15-$20 bucks. I want the pink poison one! That one really is a rare one. When I got my Honcho kit, the decals basically just fell apart on me, so it's just a black J-Truck. I'll get another one some day and try it again!

I'd really like to have one of those kits to try and duplicate my fullsize. Too bad they don't come with round headlights and razor grill though.

I would add a calibrated leak resevior so it would leave an oil spot just like the real thing!

I've got a couple in different boxings. Some folks simply think more of their offerings, I suppose. I never paid more than $20 total for one of these kits. I wish they had turbine wheels on them, though...

Not a bad kit but my efforts will be to really detail the chassis and make a Wag out of it. Lotsa work, there...

I think the best place for buy, are the swap meet in some model car contest. Last year I bought a Revell Honcho for $10.

Earlier this week I was watching a razor grill on ebay that was still at $0.01 last Friday...I thought the auction ended at 6:00pm not 6:00am...needless to say I got up Monday morning to see it already sold for a whopping $0.01

Now if they can only come out with a Sportside version.

The black Honcho kit was originally offered in '81 and it was re-issued around '96. There is also the molded red "Dude" kit '81, molded white "Pink Poison" kit '01, and the molded red "Racer" kit '83.
The Dude kit seems to be the rarest followed closely by the Racer kit.

Agree with you, and also the '81 model has better tires, bigger and softer.
