Starting a '76 Country Squire
My friend Luke and I trying to start and idle a 1976 Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon.
It sat in the woods only occasionally being started for about 5-6 years.
I will try to answer comments as best that I can, but keep in mind I am not the 'car guy'. So the answers may take awhile.
71 Ford Country Sedan Runs & Drives - $1,450
Remember when mom used to take you kids and your bikes everywhere in the station wagon?? Well, daddy got ahold of this one and put lake pipes on it! This 1971 Ford Galaxy 500 Country Sedan Station Wagon survivor has a 429 under the hood. Yes, we know there was an error in the size of the motor in the video. But getting past that, this car starts right up every time. The seats and vast majority of the interior are good. Admittedly it can use some fixing up, but the heat works fine and its got A/C, nice wheels, and dual Exhaust. There is a new alternator, a new regulator, new brakes--front hub out, new starter relay, new Monroe shocks (heavy duty on front--heavy duty air on back), a new ignition switch and of course the Lake pipes. This is a good running, driving car that can be a daily driver while you restore it.

1977 Ford LTD Country Squire drive
I shot a small video in March driving the wagon around Macomb Ill, where I used to attend college at. I did some repair work to the engine to get her running better but she still needs the engine rebuilt. At times you can see the camera vibrate, this is due to a bad miss in the engine.

FORD We are family
A parade of forgotten Ford land barges from the late 60's and 70's. Many of us fondly remember climbing into a huge Country Squire, LTD, or spacious midsize Thunderbird for the family road trip. These 2.5 ton battle wagons didnt fold up like tin foil when hit, like a new Accord or bounce you to death like a new front wheel drive "family sedan". Most are now gone, but not forgotten, we all remember the rumble of their 460 V-8 powerplants that could acually tow a travel trailer.

0-60 test with 1976 Ford LTD Country Squire with pimped 460 engine 1
Test run with my new 460 engine.
Check out my new 0-60 video where I did it on petrol with all the LPG stuff removed. It's faster!!
For a 5000+ lbs I think 9 secs aint bad. But I do feel a good tune up will take off som 0,5-1 sec. It's got a nice 1:10,5 compression, straight timing, a DUI ignition, ported heads, holley 4160 750cfm with vac sec and a comp cams xe256h camshaft. Tranny and rear axle have stock gears, so rear axle is 1:2,73. Btw I'm driving on LPG so performance I a tad less compared to petrol.
1958 CHEVY YEOMAN STATION WAGON, READY FOR RESTORATION
ALL THIS RARE STATION WAGON NEEDS IS A FRESH COAT OF PAINT. THE INTERIOR IS IN GREAT CONDITION. THE GLASS, THE CHROME IS ALL THERE AND FLAWLESS. SAME WITH THE GRILLE AND BUMPERS. THE BISCAYNE / YEOMAN STATION WAGON WAS AT THE LOW END OF THE '58 MODELS. ALTHOUGH 1958 SAW 195,583 CHEVY WAGONS IN ALL MODELS SOLD THIS YEAR, THE LOW END YEOMAN 2 AND 4 DOOR WAGONS WERE A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OVERALL CHEVY WAGONS SOLD. THIS ONE SOLD FOR $2,467 WITH THE L HEAD 6 ENGINE. THE L6 ENGINE WAS A 235 CID WITH ONLY 145 BHP. SORT OF A WEAK ENGINE FOR THIS CARGO HAULER. BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN ORDERED WITH A V8 283 CID WITH AS MUCH AS 230 BHP. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD CHOICE OF ENGINE TO PULL THIS 3,740 LB. VEHICLE. THIS FEATURE WAGON IS THE KIND OF ORIGINAL SURVIVOR THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO RESTORE. ALL THAT RUST AND WEAR TO SAND OFF AND APPLY NEW TROPIC TURQUOISE PAINT. IT APPEARS THAT THE WHEELS HAVE BEEN REPAINTED IN ORIGINAL AEGEAN TURQUOISE PAINT. THIS RARE WAGON IS INDEED READY FOR RESTORATION. Another original survivor car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
