Please view the other auctions for several classic cars. This 1954 Ford Ranch Wagon with matching Ford Ranger pop up camper has recently been restored to be used as a driver. The wagon camper combination is very rare. The Ranger camper was the first pop up camper. Between 1954 and 1956, production totaled just 200 Rangers. There are less than a dozen known to be in existence.

The exterior of the car is paintedturquoisegreen and india ivory white. The body is straight, as is the chrome and stainless steel. The interior of the wagon is new, period appropriate reproduction material. The cargo are is stunning finished in cherry wood. The headliner, tires and vintage Heat / AC are also new. The 350 small block motor is paired with a 4 speed automatic transmission. The wagon runs, drives and stops very well.

This wagon and camper have been restored with the intention of it being a drivers. They were not intended to be concours quality restorations. The wagon and camper are not perfect, but they are in very good condition. I would give it a 8.5/10. There is a stone chip in the windshield, and one of the factory Ford hubs caps on the trailer is missing.
