3 min read

“I grew up with wagons,” Ray Bohlayer said. This may explain why a 1963 Ford Falcon Deluxe station wagon is parked inside his garage today.

A total of 23,477 wagons like Bohlayer’s were manufactured. Wagons have been historically used as work vehicles, so relatively few of them survive to “antique status.” He learned that it was in need of a total restoration, though that detail didn’t deter him because most of the worn parts of the car were still available.
