Gazoo here.

Mine is a 72 Gran Torino Wagon.
351 C 2V, FMX automatic, power steering and power brakes
Originally Medium Gold Metallic with Ginger upholstery
Luggage Rack, trailer tow package, nothing else
Built in Canada (Oakville, Ontario)
Runs and drives better than it has any right to, considering it's dead original right now except for all-new brake system and a new idler arm.
Bought it for $775 from a pawn shop.
 
Objective:  Unique fun family street cruiser; ultimate goal is to complete the car for $5000 - $7000 max to demonstrate to younger folks that you can build an interesting car without spending $40,000 doing it.  Took night classes at community college to learn the basics of bodywork and paint.  We'll see how well we do.  Once I get rolling I'll start an "in-progress" thread.
 
Examples of my "budget."
Bought a 3rd row seat complete in good shape for $100.
Bought assorted trim pieces, glass and tailgate motor assemby and wiring for $100.
Bought 4 rust-free doors for $200.
Bought a used Edelbrock Aluminum 4bbl intake for the 2v heads for $75.
Have an used Edelbrock 1406 4bbl carb, and an old chrome air cleaner in storage.
Bought a pair of very slightly used Flowmaster mufflers for $40.
Bought decent dash pad from Pick-N-Pull for $20, wrong color but I'll dye it.
Bought sport mirrors and good grille emblem on ebay for $65.
Bought pair of nice bucket seats from Dodge Stratus for $60 (don't know if they'll fit yet.)
Ordered a set of American Racing Nova 702 wheels (17x8) for about $700.
 
So you get the idea!!
 
Lots of different ideas for paint but nothing firm at this time.  Lots of rust repair first.

Didn't know there were 2 types of luggage racks? Most wagons I see don't have one at all
