Those were the days: ’71 Ford Country Squire Wagon
These cars were pretty much disposable so it really nice to see one in such fresh and useable condition. And wow, are they big! This is the last and we believe final method for getting woodgrain on the side of a station wagon. Real wood was first and it was structural. Then came real wood trim in the early 50s. After that the tin woodies were in fashion. This Country Squire is vinyl. What would you do with this behemoth? The Squire is powered by a 6.6 liter Cleveland V-8 with oodles of low end torque. Therefore, it would make a very stylish tow vehicle for your race car, collector car or Airstream. It is already loaded with options including the rear Magic Doorgate that swings up & down or out like a door. That’s the magic part. It also has those cool rear facing seats. But kids, as we recall, prefer the rearward facing seats so they can make funny faces to the people directly behind. But that was before iPads and video games that keep the little darlings busy on long trips today. Now if you feel the way we do and buy this thing and you can sport it up with a set of American Torque Thrusts or run black steelies. Have a look at a bunch of detail photos by clicking here.
