I measured six times before I drilled the 18 holes for the roof rack. I put pipe dope on the screw threads to help keep the water out.

The rubber nut things are called "Well Nuts".

I think it looks pretty good.

Nice! Wagons always look better with a roof rack. I'll bet you're glad to check that one off your list!!

Very nice, Jeff! Looks like you're ready to throw some luggage up there and go camping/moteling for a week or so.

Yes... I need to think about what might look "period" strapped up there for the shows. Something that hasn't been done 100 times. No surfboards. Maybe a few 50 pound burlap bags of green coffee beans or a case of Grain Belt Beer.

You are a braver man than me Jeff. I would have cringed to drill a bunch of holes in my wagon roof. But it looks really nice.



Some vintage Skyway luggage would look nice up there. I suspect it is for looks more and not so much for use? In other words... empty luggage?

Maybe Aunt Edna from Vacation.

Here is what a few hours and $20 in paint can give you. When I change the drive-line in a year or two I will be able to do a better job. At least for now I wont be terribly embarrassed when I open the hood.

I was shocked when, after reassembling the harnesses and installing all the bits, it fired right up. My horn isn't working but I ran out of daylight to troubleshoot. I'm guessing the fresh paint insulated the relay from chassis ground.

I also gave up the bungee cord that used to hold down my battery.

Mounted the skirts.

Nice Wagon

I like your cow head upholstery, white steering wheel, white roof, and luggage rack. My first car while I was in high school was a base model 1963 four-door Falcon wagon with 170 motor and a Ford-O-Matic transmission. The car had a lot of nice features.
