Not a Mustang but a really neat ride/cruiser. I know those Magnums aren't original for that car but they sure look good.

It looks nice, but it is a wagon, not a Ranchero. I also doubt if it has the 9" rear end with the 6 cylinder engine.

Yep. Thanks - I was posting, cutting and pasting too many at once.
Corrected!

About the 9 inch in a 71 Torino - see this info. I'm not sure how creditable this article is...

"The 1971-'76 Ranchero and Torino used what was considered as a race-ready, high-performance unit straight from the factory."

Really nice looker - in a great scheme too - but I can't help but be on the fence about the styling of these. The bodyside and front end of the Galaxie platform were nicely reskinned for the 1970's, but the roofline - hardly changed from its originator, the 1966 Galaxie - is too incongruous to mesh well with the rest of the design. The 429 car I saw in person reflected this.

The '69 Galaxie looked a lot better by comparison. Now there's a looker:

I love most of the old station wagons. My parents had a few different wagons in the 60s and 70s when we were young kids.

Oh, damn, my dad had one exactly like this when I was little. He used it to deliver bakery donuts to stores at night (when they still closed at night) when he wasn't driving a big rig.
