For those of you who remember, I bought a 61 2 door wagon 1 1/2 years ago with the intention of building it up w/ a starliner roof. It's a rust bucket now. I took it in today to add a mustang II clip and do the airbags. After that, it's back to the garage because I can't afford the body work yet. Here's a pic of it before it went to the shop-

Could someone please answer a question for me?
What years were 2 door wagons produced?
Over here in the land of Oz, we never have seen any.

Can't wait to see this project evolve.

I know they made them in 60-61. Not sure on other years.

I am doing a Shockwave in the front and a cool ride in the back w/ separate shocks. A Shockwave wouldn't go low enough in the back on the Starliner. Here's a rendering of what it will look like when I am done.

Ok !!!!!!

I have some questions for you bro :

- So you are keeping your leafs ?

- If so, are you gonna de-arch them ?

- You said the Shockwaves wouldn't go low enough, do you mean with leafs or with a 2 or 4 link ?

- when you say "seperate shocks" are you meaning seperate from the airbags ?

- Are you gonna mount the bags on the leaf or the axle ?

Fakesnake - the reason i am asking this is i am thinking about baggin the rear of the Galaxie, this is what i thinking :

Im gonna de-arch my springs - almost so they are straight
the car will sit on the ground
I will run bags on the axle
When i drive i will air the bags up and cruise.
This way i can sit on the frame and lift it a few inches or so when needed.

Im really interested to know what you are doing

I am going with 4 link in rear. The Starliner wouldn't go low enough with 4 link and shockwaves in rear.

I am going to run a separate bag and separate shock in wagon so it will sit lower.

Are you gonna run the trailing arms in the original leaf spring pocket ?

what set up have you got on the starliner ?
