Station Wagon Build

A couple of years ago one of the Hot Rod magazines did a buildup of a Mid 60's Ford Station Wagon. I believe it was a 63 0r 64 Galaxie Wagon. Do's anybody remember what I'm talking about? If so do you know what magazine did it? I believe they built it into a Restomod.
The reason I'm asking is because I'm looking at maybe building a 63 Galaxie Station wagon into a Restomod & wanted to read what all mods they did.

Do not build something someone has already done.Do your own thing.It's more fun and probably more work,but it's worth it.

I think the car you may be talking about was built here in california. A local speed shop " Goteli Speed Shop " supplied the parts for the mill. I think it was a F.E.
Lots of cool wagons out there. When I was a kid, wouldn't be caught in one. Now as I become old and crusty, they seem pretty cool.
