I just spent nearly two hours searching the web for some info on a station
wagon my dad used to have back in the seventies. No luck.
So I hope there's an expert in this group that can help me out.
He bought this station wagon in 1976 (it was 5 years old at the time) and
it was light green.
Comparing the only picture that we have of it (sorry...unable to scan it)
to pictures on the net, I would have to say it resembles a 1971 Galaxie 500
Station Wagon. Especially the grille looks to be right on.
But according to my dad it was called a Ford Range Wagon or Ranch Wagon.
Apparently it was sort of an exclusive model because it had a very powerful
motor in it. According to my mom it did 90 mph easily! And her foot wasn't
even all the way down. My dad was later told that only 4 of these wagons
were ever built and that it had approx. 400hp.
During my little search on the web I came across this piece of work
http://www.cars-on-line.com/16492.html and according to my dad it looks
very much like his old station wagon. Granted it's the wrong color, but not
many of them were built and it's very fast.
My dad still claims it was called either a Range Wagon or a Ranch Wagon.
Can anyone here confirm the existance of a Ford station wagon that goes by
either of the afore mentioned names but with the appearance similar to the
station wagon in the picture?
And if so, can you point me to a website that has some additional
information about this car?
Thanks in advance.
