So cool, nearly as convincing up close as at a distance.
Ron,that's true but when ladyhrp's grandmother Ranch Wagon for floral delivery's it was ideal,rubber mats front to rear,no radio or heater,just transportation. HRP
Danny...ive got a friend that has a Ranch Wagon. Next time i get by i will take a few pics. You just dont see them everyday, thats for sure. Ladyhrp's is about as good as they get. Cool that she enjoys this vehicle...I couldnt get my wife outta her Lincoln. Your a lucky man.
Took my driver's test in mint green version of this with a swapped-in "wildcat" motor. It replaced the '57 like my avatar as the family truckster.
Well I'm a wagon guy... so here's a few pics of my 59 ford country sedan and my 53 ford mild custom wagon...
^^ That '53 is COOL. Great choice on wheel color.
Two great l0oking wagons,what size blocks did you use on the rear of the '53? HRP
Thank's HRP! No blocks... shackles are flipped. Was like that when I got it actually. Still rides great and doesn't bottom out. The 59 has 3 inch blocks.
Another of my 53...
Thanks! I decided to go with the gold, it has skinny gold scallops on it that are hard to see in the pic. Thought the gold wheels would set it off nicely.
3wincoop had a SD just like that . The rear glass had been replaced with metal and boy was that gate heavy . Love it .
Here's my 58 Yeoman. Had it since the late 80's.
I'll add my '56.
Here's what I have planned for it
My 58 Ranch Wagon.
Are there any pictures of that car? The rear glass of mine is still real glass, but spray painted from the inside.
The tailgate weighs like a ton
Leaking oil? No, sweating horsepower
Really nice, just saw this on in my Rodder's Journal email about the Nats.
Had three...one a '57 Studebaker Broadmoor four door wagon...never got it built.
Next one was a '60 Pontiac Catalina...stuck in a garage since 1983...engine was torn apart, pulled it and put in a '350"...sold it and it went to Detroit.
Next was a '60 Chevy two door Brookwood, completely rebuilt the car...
Sold that one and it went to St. Paul...heard it's all painted now...
I owned this '57 Handyman several years ago. It had a 327 and 4 speed and some rust. When I sold it the buyer drove over from Philadelphia in a Saturn and drove the wagon home with the Saturn in tow behind it. (The '57 had a trailer hitch.) I thought that was pretty cool because you don't see that too often....
couple of ones I had
Used to be Tex Smiths 65 Dodge wagon. Doing my part recycling an xmas tree
Your wagons remind me of the ones my parents had when I was growing up, we ran them till they died, then I think they got scrapped many years ago. I wish I had one now.
This one barely made it under the age criterion...
The young lady with outstanding attributes or the wagon? HRP
Good grief she's got some long hair......!
I'm pretty sure she was over 18
That wagon could have been an '82 and no one would have complained.
My 1957 I have owned since early 1970s.
