Station Wagon Living!

Station Wagon Living!

Most of you steady Jalopy Journal readers know that I’m a big wagon nut. My kids prefer to roll in our ’57 Pontiac Safari over mom’s modern kid hauler 10 times out of 10. The fact is, 1950s and 60s-era wagons are cool, practical, and ready to haul it all. Long before anyone had heard the initials “SUV”, the station wagon was the not-so-sexy choice of transportation for a family man, so Ford saw the opportunity to sell the vehicle on it’s utility and mechanism for adventure. In a 1959 issue of Ford Times, the “Station Wagon Living” article showed all the potential for road trips, recreation, camping, and a pre-internet social network. Who needs an Airstream when your wagon easily hauls the family along with a tent, beds, stove, card table, chairs AND a kiddie pool, right? I’ve uploaded the entire 31 page article for your enjoyment and potential planning for a spring road trip… Happy Motoring!
