Another project
« on: February 21 2018, 09:52:27 PM »
1966 Ford Ranch Wagon. 57k miles. 289 two barrel. Three on the tree with overdrive. Sold new on 10 December 1965 at Bock Ford in New Braunfels, Texas. It sat out for a while, thus the patina. Pulled the tank and cleaned it out.  Put a kit in the carb and the old girl fired up. Installed new wheel cylinders in all four corners and now it stops. Had to clean the points on the overdrive what I call "governor" and the over drive now works. All the lights function minus the dash lights. Haven't figured out what's going on with the horn yet, it doesn't work. Man, this thing is a highway cruiser!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Ranch wagon... Got the exhaust fabíd up and installed with an old school set of glass packs. Got the brakes bled and car stops pretty decent for drums in all four corners.  Father in law helped me pull the bumpers, trim and interior.  Dropped the seats at upholstery shop. Same guy that did the wagoneer seats. Dropped the car off at the body shop.

Maybe... was thinking about putting that 429 together that's been sitting in the barn.  For now, going to get it all put back together and cruise the little 289
