OK, so it's a Ford. So what... I'm a Chevy guy, and I still think this is one of the coolest cars I've seen on the site in a long time. Gotta love those old wagons! trophy image

Old Wagons are cool. Old fords are cooler. And Old Ford Wagons that happen to be a 64 model are so cool the temperature stops all life.

About

We bought this car in 2003. It was in all original condition, including the original paint and the original generator.

Without knowing what we were getting into, my husband forged ahead with yanking the stock 289 and replacing it with the fuel injected 302. After many trials and tribulations, it now sees daily driver duty (about 50 miles round trip).

Most of the performance parts on this car came off our Mustang with the exception of the intake. As we made the Mustang more powerful, the extra performance parts were stacking up in the garage... what better use for them than this wagon?

Just recently the body and paint were done. There was a bit of work to be done to the body, but it all came out beautifully.
