Outstanding work & Thank you posting the build
Best wagon ever
I'm going to refer to the wagon as " Hard Knock" due to the paint upolstery combo; the School of Hard. Knocks colours are black and blue... LOL
Now which steering wheel did you use?
This car is incredible!
I have a question though. I might have missed it, but what is the source of the side window glass behind the B pillar?
Very nice ride! You should be proud!
Just read through the whole thread.... absolutely phenomenal work. You and you crew are extremely talented, I tip my hat to you!.
As has been stated so many times beautiful car, top shelf crew, and one heck of a project. The thought process to build this car was phenomenal. My hats off to you sir.

The term "masterpiece " comes to mind!
We used AM Hot Rod Glass. It's really easy stuff to work with, trim, sand & even drill. After using it I can see why allot of builders are starting to use it on all there builds.
Well.. It's no fridge truck but....
Wow! I think I wore out my "like" button.
Just seen the question on the steering wheel. It's a '57 Lincoln Premiere steering wheel & column.
All I can say is.....Stunning. To me, it all flows with one exception- the hubcaps. From the outside and inside color and design, all the little design changes you wouldn't notice unless there was a stock 55 wagon next to this one. To me, a T-bird wire wheel would suit the car better. But you know what they say about opinions.......A beautiful execution of an already good design. Kudos to you and your team and the owners for the perseverance to see this one through.
Wow, what a car!
Saw it at the GNRS - stopped me in my tracks! Everything from nuts & bolts to display is perfect! Thanks for building it.
Awesome, just awesome. BigO
Really REALLY nice car! Thanks for sharing the build process!
In case anyone is inspired and wants a '57 Ranch Wagon project!
1957 Ford 2 door Ranch Wagon - $3800 (Oceanside)
Major project. No engine. Pretty complete otherwise. Has some floor rust in the front passenger side floor pan. Front fenders, hood, grill and splash pans are all there
Received my new Rodder's Journal! Really nice feature on my friend Jimmy Smith & so much other good stuff. Honored Jimmy chose to include his rendering of the wagon. Thanks @Jeem & @TRJ
Outstanding work on a unique build, congratulations the work is stunning! HRP
All I can say is WOW! Supreme workmanship on a dream build. Outstanding.
My friend John Jackson (Not Stock Photography) took some pictures when we had the car in Utah a few months ago.
