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 front end.
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!!!
