We are proud to have this rarely-seen 1956 Ford Ranch Wagon in our
showroom. This car just screams life in the 1950's and instantly
takes you back to a world that was much simpler. It has been a
"rolling restoration" enjoyed all along the way up until its
completion 3 years ago. Don't let this station wagon fool you from
it's looks though because there is a lot of power lurking beneath
that big steel hood!
It is powered by a professionally built 351ci V-8 that has been
balanced/blueprinted and outfitted with an Edelbrock intake
manifold and carburetor, electric choke, custom painted Holley
valve covers, fresh red wiring, new hoses and a Mallory
distributor. The ultra-reliable C-6 transmission has less than
2,000 miles on it and shifts just as it should through to the stock
rear-end getting the car on down the road effortlessly. It sounds
great whether just idling or running through the gears at speed
with the custom dual exhaust complete with Flowmasters.
Outside, the wagon is painted in a show-quality two-tone scheme in
Seafoam Green and Pearl White that absolutely glistens in the
sunlight. All of the redone chrome, trim and glass are exceptional,
as are the window seals. The drum brakes have recently all been
serviced and the pads replaced. She sits on chrome wheels with very
rare Mercury hubcaps and wide-white Coker tires. The windshield
wipers are still vacuum powered and working fine, but the electric
conversion kit has been purchased and goes with the car should you
decide to install.
The interior of the car is in the same or better condition than
when it rolled off of the assembly line in '56. The steel dash is
also painted in Sea Foam green to match the exterior surrounding
the original gauge cluster including a clock...all of which work as
they should. A set of S&W gauges has also been installed to
ensure accuracy and reliability since this wagon was meant to be
driven! The seats have all been reupholstered in green,
period-correct vinyl with plush blue fabric creating a nice
contrast and the carpet is also like-new. It is equipped with the
functioning factory AM radio along with all of the original
switches and knobs. The trunk, with full spare intact, is just like
the rest of the car in like-new condition.
The Ranch Wagon is an ultimate family hauler or road trip classic
that showcases all that Ford had to offer in the Customline series
of cars. This example is a fully restored and upgraded classic
station wagon that displays the best in quality, performance, and
