    Recently did 1000 miles in this for our honeymoon, 292 runs great, bit smokey but always surprises me how well it goes. Hardly notices any load you put in it.

    Here's my '63 Country Sedan. Been posted on here a couple of times in other wagon threads. Just finished throwing a bamboo headliner in it over the weekend, so that's something new! Running a big heavy 390 FE and the original 3 on the tree.

  20. I just need to ask, is this true for anyone else on here? I was a kid in the late 50s and early 60s. At that time my dad would buy a new wagon every 4 to 5 years. He used it as a family work horse. He drove it to work, and used it to pull our camper, and ski boat. He than had a nice car we used for Church, and Sunday drives etc. It was always garaged, and kept clean. Most of the time it was a convertible or hardtop. I still have a 67 Bonneville convert he got new. I never took pictures of any of his wagons. I didn't think they were cool at the time. If someone would have told me back than, that I would own, and love wagons some day, I would have said they were crazy. lol Anyone have a wagon story? And did anyone set in one of those rear seats that faced backwards? Ron...

    Ron,I was raised with Mamma Jessie's 1954 Ford Ranch Wagon,she purchased it new here in Anderson and it was her only form of transportation,the wagons main purpose was to make floral delivery's and haul supply's for her flower shop.

    [​IMG]

    I was guiding the wagon do the road in my grandpas lap when I was about the size I am in the avatar.
    The wagon served her well through the fifty's & sixty's and my dad would us it to haul lumber or any type of building materials or throw a aluminum fishing boat on top.

    She even loaned it to Danny to haul band equipment for a few weeks, we even drove the wagon to the drive in theater but eventually she decided she needed something newer and more modern so she retired the wagon and bought a VW van and gave the wagon to my dad.

    My dad drove the wagon to work,hunting & fishing for about 6 years and a man that worked with him ask if he would sell the wagon,he said he would talk to Mamma Jessie because even though she gave him the car he felt like he needed her permission,that's when I over heard the conversation and said, If you are going to sell it I'll buy it.
    He handed me the keys and said it's yours I'm tired of paying the taxes and insurance on it.

    I drove the wagon when the twins were small but one day coming home something happened to the front wheel and the car was impossible to drive.
    Danny got a wrecker to pick up the wagon and take it to our home,he later discovered it was the front spindle,he looked for a replacement for a month or so but couldn't find one so he and a few friends pushed the wagon into the barn and promised me he would fix the wagon, add he did,29 years later.

    And now ,I am the grandmother with a flower shop and someday my eldest granddaughter will take the keys and become the next caretaker of the wagon.

    I love my wagon.
