This 1961 Chevrolet Brookwood Wagon is all about opportunity. On day one it's a cool cruiser with a touch of flair on the outside. But as time goes on, we bet you'll be thinking about different options. You can keep it stock and put your business name on the side to add a feeling of generations to your company. Or maybe you want to drop a big block in here for a blacktop-burning grocery-getter. There are a ton of possibilities when you have such a cool and solid wagon like this.
Beige is a great color for any classic wagon. It is the color of suburbia, and that's where we first fell in love with the cars like this Brookwood. It just seems to remind you of summer trips or learning to drive. And the fold-down tailgate makes this one perfect for picnics even today. And the reason why we love the 1961 car in particular is that it had a very distinct style. The sheet metal had a terrific provide with dual creases. One was straight and the other tapered to look like an arrow pointing this car forward. And that lower one would also wrap around both the front and rear for a swift and nearly seamless style. You can see it all so clear today because the body is clean and straight.. Bright chrome bumper and complete trim give this the right 1960s style. Plus, the upgraded Coys wheels with 18/20 inch front/rear stagger adds extra shine while also giving a subtle aggressive touch to the stance.
The interior is clean, complete, and uncluttered. Two rows of wide bench seats remind you of classic road trips with the family, and the huge cargo area is large enough to bring the whole tailgate party for your friends. Items like the seats, door panels, and headliner were updated later in life, but nothing takes away from the classic atmosphere. In fact, upgraded AM/FM radio is a retro-style unit just so the full package looks vintage. So it's the kind of style that's functional today and you have all the right stock pieces for whatever future plans you may have.
The 235 cubic-inch inline-six is smooth and torquey, and it was a mainstay of Chevrolet vehicles for decades. It's refreshing to see the original style motor still in one of these iconic Chevy bodies. There are even cool details like the side air intake. And there's a touch of flair with the Wayne aluminum valve cover and matching finned rocker. So while we all know some seriously big V8 will fit in here, this also just has a nice honesty that knows how to get this wagon moving. And that same classic feeling is extended to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
You've got plans and we've got your wagon. So it's time to grab this Brookwood. Call today!!!
