As unique as my 1960 Ford Wagon is, this one is even rarer. I was perusing eBay for 2-door wagon parts when I came across this little jewel. I couldn't believe they actually made them, so I researched it and sure enough there were several hundred made.
This sounds crazy, but it came from the Seattle area and I was told by the seller it was used by his mother (little old-lady) to bring fish and farm produce back and forth between the market and home. It does have a little rust and a few dents, but only 60k miles. He kept in touch with me for a while as he wanted to see it completed, so I think he was honest about its history.
As usual, my ideas extend beyond my capabilities and its been sitting for a decade. I haven't touched it yet but I have some wild plans for it.
FYI - there are several pics of the actual car below, but I have also included pics of other 61 Ford wagons and a Sunliner (convertible) that provide me with inspiration and prevent me from selling this one.
It's about number 6 on my priority list.
Original three on the tree.
BODY & PAINT
WHEELS & TIRES
I need to to take it off the chassis and send it out for media blasting. Then repair some rust in the right rear quarter.
No crazy body mods planned, but I have a complete set of 1961 Country Squire wood grain trim that I want to use on it. Of course, I need to modify the 4-door trim for a 2-door.
I also want to put it on a Morrison or Roadster Shop chassis with IRS.
I want a SOHC cammer motor in it.
I want a Tremec 6-speed.
I want, I want, I want....
I've got too many projects.
