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.

1971 FORD CUSTOM RANCH WAGON -- LOW END WAGON
There was a time especially in the seventies, an influx of wagons across
America. Wagons were the family haulers, the cargo haulers, and a great
utilitarian vehicle that was the forerunner of the minivan and the suv.
Ford was a leader in the wagon field and produced different levels of
wagons to fill various market needs. The Ford Custom Ranch Wagon like this
was at the low end. Other wagon models included the Custom 500 Ranch Wagon
a 5 door 2 seat, the Custom 500 Ranch Wagon, a 5 door 3 seat, the G500
Country sedan wagon, 5 door 2 seat and 5 door 3 seat, and lastly, Country
Squire 5 door 2 and 3 seater. Options and accessories differ with each
model including the price tag. This wagon here cost around $3,400 and
16,696 of these low end wagons were produced. Nearly 250,000 Ford wagons
were sold this year. Not a bad showing. Engines range from an L-head 6,
240 / 140 to V8's, 351 / 240, 400 / 260, 429 / 320 - 360 This example here
is a good representation of what Ford created for a low end wagon. This
low mileage has excellent paint, like new green vinyl seats, plenty of
cargo space and spare tire well. Notice the dash that thrust toward the
driver with the instruments all right there under the driver's eyes.
Thanks for viewing this 1971 Ford Custom Ranch Wagon.
