    This one is getting a bit drawn out, its a personal project though. They tend to get put on the back burner for customer work. 1954 Ford 4 Door Wagon. Just needs the window seals and glass installed then final assembly, but has been at this stage for 2 years now.

    50 Olds gets my vote. Whens the last time you saw a 50 Olds wagon?

    Over the top but close, 67 Impala wagon. Take the dogs to the beach car. Weird factory options; was the fire marshals on an Air Force base in Calif, 327, 3 on the tree, 10 bolt posi and has a SS dash with factory tach and gauges. Fun car!

    Getting my son's '65 Ranch Wagon ready to roll. 352, auto, rusty quarters and dog legs, but otherwise a nice solid survivor. 31949757_10216961009920111_5340382466358116352_n.jpg

  18. '62 Valiant wagon was our family car during my high school years. Fire engine red, with a red interior. I was embarrassed by it back then; today, I wish I had it.

    Yeah, didn't have a choice no one made gauges for the 54 and it was planned to be a fast build.

    Currently restoring a one-off 1963 Caddy wagon with a 64 Vista Cruiser top. A custom job from the 60s. Most insane project ever.
    I upgraded the drivetrain to a '65 caddy 429 and TH400. Trying to get a custom manifold made for 2 x 4s.
    10:1 slugs. Stock cam.
    Lots 'n lots of old bondo was removed....about 80 lbs. (No kiddin').
    Im painting it Ferrari Cally light blue pearl. White vinyl roof.
    Goin' broke fast...
