    Ok posted my 1960 Pontiac safari wagon several days ago. Since then I've flat blacked the top and bottom and left the original gold on there beat up and scratched up. I put scallops on the bottom and now need to do the roof. After they're done I'll pin stripe them.

    That's gorgeous. Stock-but-lowered does it for me every time on a '50s car.

    Thank you for showing me what my wagon might look like if I scallop it! I wasn't sure about putting 2 or 3 scallops at the back of the rear wheelwells.

    Here is my 64 falcon wagon. It has a built 260, c4 auto, and a maverick 8" with 3.80 and a spool. Is real fun car to drive but I hate when people ask " when you going to paint it? " I'm not this thing is done and I'm rocking it like this for awhile!

    Got us a '56 wagon last week, Previous owner did a disc brake conversion,New rear leafs and bushings,New front end rebuild,and a crate motor 350/290 hp. then he broke his back and parked it 18 years ago. We brought it home drained the fluids and change lines and filters and pump. Put a battery in and she fired up. put some of our extra wheels and tires on and she's a driver. Built in Oakland and never left San Francisco.

    Three-on-the-tree? I don't suppose you're lucky enough to have an overdrive too? Cool car.

    That is one fine set-up you got there. I'm not much of a "camper," but I would learn to like camping if I owned that rig. Congratulations.

    Sold my 62 Impala wagon at the 2013 NSRA Nats in Louisville. It went to Louisiana. Haven't had sellers remorse yet but I know it will come. Now playing with my 63 Bel Air 2 door post car.

    I know you are done, but would a little rubbing compound bring back that original paint job? Looks like it was a sick job back in the day.

    This has been in my family since 1955 and recently sat for for 30+ years. 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon. The 2nd from the last picture is me right after the car was brought back to life last summer. The last picture is my father back in 1969 on riverside ave. in Roseville, California.

    Here's the 53 Burb that I picked up a few weeks ago. I probably won't get started on it until this fall. Looking forward to it.

    Love the beaumont wagon. i had one once and own a couple 64 chevelle wagons, one is even saddle tan

    I have seen your car advertized over the last few years, if it was closer to winnipeg i would have owned it a few years back, love it

    Always wondered about the color, What is the original combination
    it looks like saddle tan with a red interior, but if thats the case, it had to be special ordered?
    if you ever need info or wagon trim parts for the car, let me know, i may have some spare stuff.
     
  30. Thanks, the building is in Uniontown Pa. It's actually located in an older housing plan. Not sure what it's original purpose was other than it was used as some kind of factory. There's actually another smaller matching building across the street. The two places have been for sale for a while, but I've heard the insides are a complete disaster.
