58 two door wagon is something to remember. Are there any others out there ?.


 I think "Big John" Preikschat by Regina has a 58 sedan delivery, very rare.  I'm sure it's in need of restoration.


 I wonder what is more rare, the two door wagon or the two door sedan delivery. I have seen 2 door sedan delivery's in my life but never a two door wagon.

"I put a clear coat over the patina and added chrome bullets to the original hubcaps and a set of bias ply white walls to finish it off."

 I've been a car spotter since the 1960s when I was riding a tricycle but I can't recall actually seeing a 2-door '58 Pathfinder wagon in person, or at least not a viable one. A couple of sedan deliveries, yes. My next door neighbors had a 60s Anglia and would often be visited by someone driving a '58 Ford 2-dr Ranch Wagon, so I do remember when this sort of car could be seen on the streets.

 

As for the feature car, I love it! Perfect as it sits.

 

It is funny how this car was just stumbled upon. A good friend's older brother found a '57 Pathfinder Deluxe 261 3-speed in an alley in Toronto back in 1977 the same way. He gave it a quick respray of Sapphire Blue & White in his driveway (lacquer dried fast and had some durability back in the days of lead; just wet sand the orange peel & bugs out until right).)  It was a tough car. One time while on a trip in Wisconsin that '57 was involved in a multi-car accident. He and the car were fine, just an egg-sized dent in the bumper. The Beetle the Pontiac hit was demolished and had to be put on a trailer to move. Loved that 261 3-speed as well. At idle it was silent.

I would be the 2 door wagon would be rarer as I suspect a few sedan deliveries would have been fleet deliveries. That's my theory
