Hibernation

Posted: January 17, 2013 in Uncategorized

It’s Winter.  That’s all I can give as an excuse as to why I haven’t done any work on the Ranch Wagon since November. It’s rainy, wet, cold, and dark.  All these added up to a sum of me being inside, working on other projects. I did manage to get the car cover off of the wagon on a cold, clear day.  I wanted to let it air out a bit and check to see if any water had gotten in.

It was mostly dry. The sun wasn’t putting off much heat, but I soaked up some water that had puddled in the engine compartment and put the car cover back on in the evening.  I have been working on cleaning up the transmission cross member brace.  I won’t be paining it anytime soon, as the temperatures prohibit it.  I’ll post some pictures later of some of the progress I’ve made on some of the inside projects I’ve done where it’s warm and dry.

  1. That’s one of the reasons I moved to Florida. I can still paint and work in the garage all winter. I feel for you. Maybe you’ll get an early spring thaw.

    Are you getting the wagon out of hibernation soon? I’d love to see what you’ve been up to!

      Hey Chris,
      The Ranchwagon has been mothballed for awhile. Life has kind of gotten in the path of it. I hope by the end of July I can get back to working on it. I am however enjoying the progress you are making on your ’57 Thunderbird.

    I totally understand about life getting in the way. I hope all is well with you and your family and look forward to seeing your progress when you jump back in.

    Would you happen to have a rear seat for a 58 ranch wagon? I have a edsel roundup and i understand it is the same. Mine is missing. Thanks. 210-534-2000

    Thanks for taking the time to post your progress. Just picked up a 59 4-door ranch wagon and the information you listed was helpful. As soon as I finish the wifes car (68 Charger) I’m tearing the wagon apart

    Did you ever get back to work on this one?
