This rig is located in Portland, Ore., at 19th and about SE Hawthorne. Today (03-May-2000) I took a detour returning from my neighborhood hardware store, and espied this one. "Phil" owns both this one and a brown (originally green) '63 fordor sedan (170/Fordomatic), which is his driver these days. Just goes to show that they're out there.
This wagon is not his daily driver anymore, though it used to be.
170 Six & (previous-owner-installed 4 speed?) w/aftermarket floor shifter,
it has been around, but is still loved. Phil can't decide whether
to spend his upcoming income tax refund on a new paint job for the driver,
or getting this one running. One or the other might be up for sale
in the future.
It has the "Brands" rear seat pattern in brown, which I had not seen in person before, and which I hope to photograph later. The front seat is a correct 2dr/Ranchero split bench, but it evidently from a different rig, as it's a different color. Interior is ratty original, other than the shifter.
