While station wagons are usually Litwin’s domain, he’s still recuperating from Charlotte today, so I’ll present to you this pair of FoMoCo station wagons that appeared in the Hemmings.com classifieds yesterday. Let’s start with the 1970 Ford Country Sedan with the timeless combination of wheelwell-filling meats on aluminum wheels in the back and thin whitewalls and wheelcovers in the front, offered for $3,500 out of Shoshone, Idaho. From the seller’s description:
All original car, red exterior, black interior, 390 2bl, C6, has some rust on lower rear panel, runs and drives well.
Back East, in Wilmington, Delaware, we see a blackwall-shod 1972 Mercury Colony Park with an asking price of $4,300. From the seller’s description:
My weekly driver, 429 V8, auto trans, third row center-facing, power steering, brakes, windows, front seat and tailgate window. 97K miles, runs well, drives nice and tracks straight. New parts include reupholstered seats, new carpet, insulation, seat belts, front and back brakes, rear wheel cylinder, heater core, heater hoses, all four shocks, exhaust, tires, battery and auxiliary gauges. The exterior has a nice shine and is presentable, however there are several chips and blemishes. There is very little rust on the car which are about the size of a half-dollar on each lower door corner and the floor sheet metal in the third row area was replaced at some point in the past. At some point in the past, the car was repainted the original white color however the wood di-noc was not replaced. The power windows in the second row do not operate however the motor turns. Also, the power door locks don’t work however the lock knobs function proper.
So, geography aside, which wagon would you wheel home?
