Very well sorted 1955 Ford Country Sedan 9-Passenger Wagon. Aesthetically true to its roots but with modern mechanical updates including a fuel injected H.O. 302, Air Conditioning, Wilwood Disc Brakes, and new dual exhaust. This wagon is the perfect classic to drive and enjoy daily if so desired. Updated with many tastefully restrained modern amenities. You can drive and enjoy a reliable and safe classic and get a ton of attention anywhere you go. Perfect promotional vehicle for a small business or to just enjoy as a very usable part of your collection. Inspections welcome. Will not disappoint. Among the nicest 50’s Ford Wagons on the market. Currently part of a large collection of classics near Salt Lake City, UT. Car drives great and I wouldn’t hesitate jumping in and heading cross country in this wagon.
I purchased this wagon 3 years ago in Palm Springs, CA. The wagon body is 9.5/10. Great panel gaps. Doors and tailgate operation are flawless. Paint is 8/10 and I would describe as very good but could stand some wet sand/buffing/polish to deepen the luster. Interior is 9/10 and has one single issue with the glove box latch that sticks. Mechanically I had some sorting to do when I bought the wagon. I replaced the A/C system with a complete package from Classic Auto Air, updated the front brakes to a disc conversion from Wilwood. The exhaust system was not properly adapted for the 302 conversion so I installed a custom and correct fitting dual system. Exhaust is new from manifolds to exhaust tips. Engine and trans run flawlessly. One of the few classics in my collection that I can reliably leave off a battery tender for months at a time without any issue firing right up. Just acquired another car which is displacing my parking for the wagon so it has been voted out.
If there was anything I’d modify if keeping it would be to swap ring and pinion to a 3.55 or 3.73 ratio. I haven’t verified but I believe the current ratio is something near 2.80. Really a personal preference but with this engine/trans, it could benefit from a more aggressive ratio. With the vibe of the wagon being so laid back, it’s certainly not necessary and just fine as is.
