    Here are some of mine.

    1946 Ford Hearse, only one I've ever seen.

    [​IMG]

    1950 Canadian Pontiac Ambulance (Canadian Pontiacs are Chevies with Pontiac looking grills and trim)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    51 Dodge Coronet Ambulance, 46 ford Hearse, 50 Pontiac Ambulance.

    [​IMG]

    The Dodge is rough and is one of 46 built for the Canadian military, I only know of 2 others and from what I have been able to research (very little) those 3 may be the only ones. The Ford is rust free, has very little body damage and all I am looking for for it is a better sedan delivery rear door (someone pushed this one with a truck) and some nice landau irons. The Pontiac looks like hell but is actually quite good, it has 2 small rust holes smaller then a finger tip, it has 35000 miles but the engine is seized.

    Here is a 56 Meteor Niagara I picked up for parts, then I realized it has no floor rust or structural rust at all... not sure what we are going to do with it... might make it a gasser.

    I don't seem to have any photos of the rest of my actual wagons, at least none I have found yet so I will have to go take some.
    Though you can see my 59 Meteor 2 door ranch wagon in the background of this photo.

    And just for fun and because it's a long roof too, my 59 Suburban...

    [​IMG]

    Bought this one in early '72. The black was too hot inside. Yes, it's injected. see avatar.

    In 1999 my friend of 33 years died and I bought this one from his brother.

    [​IMG]

    Yah, I like wagons.

    Hey, how much are you going to ask for your wagon? I have a friend that may be interested. What motor?

    I tried to pm you but your inbox is full. Email or pm me please.

    thanks!

    I haven't posted about my wagon forever. I've been busy with it- drag racing (12.40s on the street tires- at 114 mph!), road racing (was clocked at 130 mph on-track), autocrossing, and doing long distance trips (went from home in MN to TN and back- 2,000 miles).

    Also, did this: http://www.carcraft.com/eventcovera...eliminator_vi_car_craft_shootout/viewall.html

    First wagon to ever place in the Real Street Eliminator competition, let alone win. Made 579 hp at the rear wheels- not bad!

    Then they did this: http://www.carcraft.com/featuredveh...u_real_street_eliminator_winner/photo_01.html

    A 6-page feature on a 4-door wagon!

    Okay, so it's Car Craft. I get it- muscle car stuff, and this is the HAMB. I know the drill. But it's got a slew of traditional style, and is kicking late-model ass while running a carb and a distributor on an SBC. I've been busy with it!

    Now I have seen Edsels, and I have seen Oldsmobiles, and I have seen Chryslers and Fords (all wagons being quite scarce now), but I have NEVER seen a '57-9 Mercury wagon, ever. Any out there?


    yep. <!-- / message --><!-- attachments -->

    There are some great looking wagons here. Lee grant is helping me with a 62 Galaxie Country Sedan that came from B.C..It's going to take awhile but at least it's not going to the crusher. Check my album for pics. I'm not sure how to post them here - Don

    It made 545 at the flywheel. I jetted it to spray 150hp according to the plate mfr. (Wilson Products) and they're pretty sharp folks. So, all the math equates to around 430-440 to the tires N/A. That means I lose 100 through the drivetrain (T56 6-speed/Currie 9-inch) which is close to the 20% most agree is typical for an automatic. I haven't made a chassis dyno pull without nitrous The Car Craft deal was its first time on a chassis dyno, and since I was in the 'competition' I just did what they asked me...I could have paid for more pulls without using nitrous, but I didn't. Maybe I should have in retrospect, but I would have wanted a different tuneup on the engine for that since I jetted up and dialed the timing back for the nitrous pulls. I have plans to make some upgrades soon, and I'll be tuning it on a different chassis dyno, so I'll learn then.
