    My parents had a 68 Country Squire LTD. I witnessed that car did 120 MPH. A/C was ice cold.

    Local guy that has a 67 coupe just had a 63 Galaxie wagon show up in his driveway this week.

    Hands down, go for the '57. Find one that has patina and build up the mechanicals and interior, then drive it! I was actually looking for a '57 when I came upon this '65, and would still like to get into a '57 wagon.

    That's a sharp wagon too.

    I like that body style but ultimately want the older one. I'm still trying to figure out the differences in the model years.

    I started this whole idea when I saw a 61 falcon wagon on local Craigslist.

    Nice wagon. I always wanted a 61 Galaxie 500 or a Wagon... The fins are the kicker.....

    What does it say about modern cars that rides everyone scoffed at a few decades ago now have such design appeal? I mean who would have ever thought old, boxy station wagons would now look so cool.

    Wish I still had my parent's 68. But a tree fell across it about 15 years ago.

    Alright, I'll say it.

    I bet you get a "new" build done before ole' twinkle toes Terry gets his finished.

    I like that one! I'd consider adding it to my collection.
    And I too remember when you wouldn't be caught dead in a wagon. They had that soccer mom minivan vibe, but now they are a hot trend.
    Maybe someday minivans will be cool? No. I doubt it.

    Found a possible candidate. It's in Minnesota. About 4 hrs from me. Only problem is getting over to look at it. I'm working every day for the next 2 weeks.

    I'm going to contact him and see if he can send more pictures and find out the rust condition.

    58 2 door Ford wagon.

    Being in Minnesota I just hope it's not rusted to hell.

    And he has no title. Not sure how I feel about that. Have to do a bonded title.

    how does a "bonded" title work? the no title stuff always seems tricky
