This 1968 Ford Country Squire Station Wagon is all your vintage
dreams rolled into one. After all, it has that classic wood-paneled
grocery-getter look of nostalgia inside and out. But there's also
irresistible sporty touches everywhere from the hidden headlight
front end to the 390 V8 under the hood. And best of all, this total
package is offered for a value price.
The three-row V8 station wagon was one of the most expensive cars
in the Ford lineup in '68 - pricier than the convertible Galaxies
and Torino GTs. So you're already looking at the distinction of
rarity even before you dig into the details. Usually wagons were
used-up from years as the family hauler, but you can instantly tell
this one is something special. The factory-correct red paint was
refreshed later in life - enough to give it a good gloss without
taking away from the aged-in nostalgia. In fact, there's sure to be
some memories popping up the moment you see the reconditioned wood
paneling vinyl wrap. It makes for a true classic tone with modern
durability. Everything on this will give you the best vintage
vibes, right down to the color-matched wheels with two-piece trim.
But what also attracts you to a car like this is that Ford made
sure this range-topping wagons also had flair. You see it
everywhere from the curve of the profile to the hidden headlight
The deep red interior keeps a vintage appearance filled with
eye-catching details. The first two seats have a terrific classic
look, including well-preserved wood paneling and the premium LTD
trim in the backs. The rear is built for big cargo, but what you'll
really love showing off are the opposing jump seats that make this
a rare ten-passenger wagon. So it has the kind of distinct style
that will have you bring everyone to the car shows. But no matter
how many people are along for the ride, you'll appreciate how Fords
of this era were centered around the you. The two-tier instrument
panel puts all the gauges up high and the secondary controls down
low. The effect is very clean and driver-oriented. You'll love all
the vintage features, like the artful steering wheel, ultra-wide
speedometer, and working AM radio. There are even great premium
items like the power rear window and factory air conditioning (will
need servicing to blow ideally cold again.) Plus, they added some
nice pieces to make this a great cruiser for modern time, like
cruise control and an auxiliary gauge trio so you can keep an eye
on what's going on in the engine bay.
More great stock-style flair is under the hood with the bold blue
of a proper Ford V8. This Z-code wagon correctly has a 390
cubic-inch motor. It was a great one for the muscle cars, and so
this strong-running powerhouse also makes this wagon feel
effortless in everything it does. Out on the open road, the factory
four-barrel carb opens up and moves this large Country Squire with
authority. And the C6 three-speed automatic transmission is always
happy to cruise. So with other features like the power steering,
power brakes, front discs, and modern comfortable tires, this is
the right choice for those who like to drive their classics.
This is the awesome nostalgia wagon that also has some premium and
sporty flair. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry
to catch this deal. Call today!!!
