    Just bought a 64 Wagon. Hasnt run in 20 years and is incredibly rough.


    First thing we did was get her running..

    Now I need a windshield and a fuel tank. There was no tank with the car, so if you have pictures or engineering sketches of what I am looking for, please send them to me.

    Check out the PO's attempt at a fuel cell. He ran the fuel line in the car and through the gas pedal grommet. [​IMG]

    Wish me luck and any words of wisdom are welcome!

    Rough? Compared to what? At least you have one, finding one is the hardest part.

    Still deciding if I am leaving as a "patina" rod, or restoring. I have a plus, my wife likes it.

    Rough in the sense that floors are rusty and and battery box is rusty.

    I can send you dimensions of the tank from my '63, I can check part numbers tonight but I'll be they are the same. I've just began work on cleaning my tank and researching the option of using a fuel cell. My tank is rusty, dented, and a couple patches done for which I don't deem completely well. Something else I hadn't thought of until today is fuel sloshing out the filler. I don't know enough about it yet, but I'm researching the options for cost/benefit of fixing old vs fuel cell. Repop tanks are only made for coupes and sedans with the filler out the back of the car, not the side as we need. I'm subscribed!

    Updates on your wagon?
  14. LOL I was thinking the same thing. I had a late '70s van from Louisiana once that you could actually look from one side of it to the other in some places once. :D

    I may drive it rough for a while but my end game would be to get it cleaned up and presentable at some point in the future.

  17. Bruce,
    That actually counts as a falcon? I would have guessed fairlane. Its just a question, OK?
  18. My Mistake porknbeaner I meant Fairlane, good
  19. Geno that's rough shape? Did you ever see my 56 buick wagon when I got it? Hey working on it for the past 3 years has kept me out of the titie bars .I still spent the same amount of money Here it is and I think I have a picture of the front seat too.Bruce. 00o0o_82PxJSvNBPi_600x450-1.jpeg
  20. Wasn't a catch at all, I just figured that I missed something and you knew about it. :D

    I think but don't hold me to it that a falcon in Australia is actually a mustang. :)
  21. HPIM2018.JPG Here the front seat. Mine had a motor knock , trans just gushed fluid and found out the brake booster didn't work when I went thru the back wall of the shop with it.Bruce.
  22. Still have a scar on my ass from them damn
  23. Good excuse to expand the shop. :D

    Patina being overdone so I vote for fresh paint- Ford's White is so nice-
  26. Been covered post #19.

    I usually blame it on autocorrect but Bruce owned up to it. I would have gone with autocorrect if it were me. :D

    I do have to get some rocker shafts properly clearance today by the way so if you guys see me on here in another half an hour remind me to get the hell off the internet. :D

  28. Yes I do thanks
    I actually worked for a while and came in to uh, screw off. :D
  29. Yes Porknbeaner if it hadn't been in November.I had to shove old bedsheets in to the big hole till the weather warmed
