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.
