Hi All,

Just recently bought a Stock EF 5.0 Wagon, mainly for space as im in a wheelchair but for towing my tinny aswell, I have no idea what to do with it and what kits look best...

was thinking changing the stock front bonnet to a fairlane ghia, lowering it and dark tint for starters... I have a old set of 15inch globes not sure if i should put them on or not??....

play with interior later..

Just wondering what sort of kits would suit best or any other great ideas welcome.

Thanks for your time, much appreciated for your thoughts.

Hi, and welcome to Fordmods.

Pics, we love pics, are a good place to start.

If you want a Fairmont or Fairlane bonnet, they are the same with different grills, you also will need the bumper, headlights and bonnet catch, as they are all different to the GLi/Futura parts.

I would suggest reading a few threads in the Garage to get some ideas of what is possible etc.

Cheers
BenJ

Ben's being modest :) .. take a look at his wagon as a great example of what can be done.

Hi all,

Very pleased I came across this site. I'm actually going to pick it up next weekend so ill post pics as soon as I get the old girl back.

Ive owned an el sedan the last 6 years and I just like this style of car and the Wagon has always caught my eye partculary the ones that had a few mods on them.... not looking to be outrages just wanting a nice clean tough looking Wagon. Read one of the posts saying dont spend 5000 on something you will only sell for 1500.. welll not really looking to sell I like this model car so will be slowly making it smick :)

WOW to Ben and his wagon very very nice.... hoping my beast will come along well over the next few years.

Thanks for the welcome and ill keep you all posted.

Cheers,


Ash
