Check out this original promotional shot of the new 1961 Ford Country Squire. These are great looking Wagons.

Even the more economical wagons like this 1961 Ford Country Sedan look great. Check out this beauty.

For those Ford Barners that collect model cars, Dinky Toys of England made this 1961 Ford Fairlane many years ago. While it is a two door sedan, I think that it was modelled from a four door model, judging by the length of the front doors. It would appear that the model maker simply deleted the outline of the rear door to achieve a two door of this model. Other than that, it is quite a nice model of an unusual car. It is also available as a Police Car. Dinky numbered all their Police Cars 258, so it is obvious that the wrong Box is pictured under the 61 Ford Police Car.

To get an idea how much room I have to play with if anyone has any idea how much space is between the hood and the water tank that would help. Has anyone else gone through this and if so what did you use for filters. There's nothing like sticking a carb. stud through a freshly painted hood. Manifold is a Edelbrock F-262 and carbs. are early Carter AFB 4 1/4 air horn.

Found this picture of this weathered 1961 Ford Galaxie 2 door hardtop. I like the styling of the 61 Fords. Just a pity that there are not more of them around?

The smaller of the two looks more like a 1990 model.

I agree with “Merchman from oz” that their aren’t many 61 Fords around, they are a favorite of mine too. But because they are scarce, whenever one does show up somewhere they always draw an admiring crowd. It’s always the first car I go look at.
