    RM Sotheby's - Ford Deluxe Station Wagon | The Dingman Collection

    Delighted with the Ford Cabriolet custom rod built for him by Jim Lowrey and also offered at this sale, Mr. Dingman desired a similar car in a station wagon style. They were the last to use bodies built by Murray Corporation of America with wood from Ford forests in northern Michigan. The following year, production of complete, redesigned bodies began at Iron Mountain, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. The wagons would move to a forward-hinged rear door and a tailgate spare tire, rather than the rear-hinged and inside spare configuration of the s.

    The Fords are very much desired by collectors for their combination of hydraulic brakes, which were new that year, and floor shift transmission, a feature discontinued in The Deluxe model also had the purest form of the low, pointed grille carried forward into In carrying out the custom rod theme, Lowrey followed the pattern of the Cabriolet car.

    The chassis was modified for control arm, coil-over-shock absorber independent front suspension, and trailing arm-coil spring rear design. A Ford nine-inch rear axle was used. For the engine, a Ford small block crate engine was chosen. A five-speed Tremec transmission was installed with an open driveline.

    Power rack-and-pinion steering was fitted, along with power-assisted hydraulic brakes, discs in front, and drums at the rear. The car has red disc wheels with stainless trim rings—an understated but very sporting appearance. The engine is from SPO Ford Motorsports, a bhp version of the venerable cubic inch small block with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Mallory Unilite electronic ignition, as well as an electric cooling fan.

    As it emerged from the barn in , the car required restoration of its wood body. The interior of the car was configured for creature comforts. It is equipped with air conditioning and full-width seats in the front and rear. The seats are from Glide Engineering, the front a split bench type with center arm rest. The rear seat is fixed in place and both are done in red leather. The third seat was dispensed with, and the rear compartment was carpeted for luggage and other personal effects.

    Additionally, air conditioning ducts have been subtly installed beneath the dashboard, and the compressor is tucked away, low in the engine compartment. A modern stereo is unobtrusively installed under the dashboard with a hidden antenna. The speakers are located in the front kick panels, and the subwoofers are installed under the rear seat.

    For this and other electrical upgrades, the car has been converted to volts. The dashboard retains its original form with restored wood grain, and the steering wheel is the authentic restored banjo type. The gauges were sent to Classic Instruments in Michigan for restoration and conversion to electronic operation. As a result, the driver gets the visual sense of a Ford but with a vastly different feel. The unmodified examples have been restored to their showroom-fresh appearance, while this car in particular captures the customizing spirit that is of course also so prevalent in Ford history and has, in this case, been executed in a very understated and tasteful way.

    As a result, this car is a true Ford through and through and stays faithful to heritage with a manual transmission. It takes a practiced eye to fully appreciate all the artful updates. This Ford station wagon custom rod combines the best of authentic Ford features with 21st century technology.

    In all situations it provides utmost comfort and convenience to the driver and passengers. It is, in short, the ultimate Ford—a blend of classic and modern with styling that stays true to its heritage. User Contact Media Media Info. Enter Media information Media Type.
