  • 1958? Ranch Wagon VIN Tag Serial Number?

    A freind brought this over the other day. It was in a box of stuff from an auction. I did some research and think it could be from a 58 Ranch Wagon. Can anyone tell me for sure? Thanks Rod

    79A is the body code for a 1958 four door Ford Ranch wagon. I believe the first year where they made a 2 door and a 4 door Ranch wagon. Before that all Ranch Wagons were 2 doors.

          I didn't realize Rowdy's post was from 6 months ago. I'll have to pay attention to the details.

            No problem Sal. The guy was disapointed in the info I gave him. But facts are facts. Rod

          Two questions about Station Wagons...
          by Steve Plucker
          When was the change from the 150-A to the 150-B month wise in 1930?

          Who provided the Station Wagon bodies for the 150-A? Was it Murray?

          Who provided bodies for the 150-B? Was it (Briggs or Murray or both) and Baker Raulang?

          Any other body builders?

          Were the door latches painted body color?
          by Curly
          My 1931 truck doors are due for some attention. I have to slam them shut. There are also some rattles.
          I received some new door hardware in my recent Brattons order.
          The door latch on the door, and the plate around it... were they body color? I’ve seen them left the metal silver color they come as, I’ve seen them painted black, and most commonly I’ve seen them painted body...

          VIN for a 1925 Model T
          by Curtis B.
          I am trying to register a recently bought 1925 Model T. There is no title and Ca. DMV has no records on the car. The DMV told me that I need to go to the CA, CHP to get a VIN verification. Here's where the problem is: Talking to the officier at CHP, he claims there is a stamped VIN number or serial no. on the chassis and I need to remove the body off of the car to get access to the number. From...

          28-29 Cowl Fordor - What is this.?
          by Jwmckenzie
          I recently purchased this cowl and was told it was a cowl for a '29 Station Wagon. After getting it home, I convinced myself that it was for a 28-29 Fordor. After spending some time searching on this internet machine, now I am not sure.

          All the Fordors I find have the cowl mounted to a steel structure. This sheet metal appears to mount to wood door posts, nail holes in sheet metal...

          Painting the doors on a four door 170B Delux
          by donh
          I'm in the process of painting my A Black and Maroon. When the doors are painted on the outside does the color scheme wrap around to the door jamb? Or is the jamb painted one color
