Hey Poncho, you can always buy mine! This is from June. All the bumpers, roof rack, chrome and trim are back on now. It is for sale.
Here's mine. What do you expect for $75??
Not a wagon, but close enough. I just picked up rust free front fenders for this thing, and for a 55-6 Pontiac in this part of the world, that was no small feat. It's a 56 Poncho sedan delivery, really rare. 1583 built, Canadian only. I put in a rebuilt 57 rear end, 350/350.
Here's a link to my good friends Chris and Mike's site where they truely worship the American station wagons.
They are running some pretty fast times too.
oldcarglassguy did a good job listing the 4-door wagons. can someone fill in the years for them? he also mentioned his plymouth 2-door hardtop wagon and asked about others. there are the nomads and safari wagons, of course, but i can't think of any others, although there probably were.
while you guys are drooling over the pix shown here and scrambling to post your own, can someone list the 2-door post wagons? chevy made them most years in the late 50's and so did ford. i'm pretty sure there were early falcon 2-door wagons. how about chevy II's? the plymouth suburbans were 2-door wagons, weren't they? others?
how about sedan deliveries? these ran from model a days to the 60's. in the later years who made them?
Mercury had a two-door hardtop wagon in 57, 58, and 59. Four-door hardtops 57-60. Before and after were based on Ford bodies = no hardtops.
40studedude...you are absolutly right! I dropped the ball on that one. A freind of ours who hangs out with him bought a 60!!! I couldn't remember which it was..(is there a dumbguy icon?) hehe.....hears a pic of Jeremy's 60 then....Enjoy!
Heres a pic of our '59 Rambler wagon. The sixer was junk, so it got a 355 SBC with a 4 speed and an 8" ford rear.
Lil_Jimmy...Want another? I know where a '60 is...maybe in YOUR corner of the woods...
Neppy...in regards to your post below...saw one from Minesota in Des Moines over 4th of July...was faux Impala but cool looking...GG's carried a shot of it in their coverage of Des Moines last issue (or two ago).
<font color="green"> Found this pic last night and just about cried. I didn't even know Chevy made 2 door wagons in 59. Now I want one even more. </font>
It ain't mine but,it is sweet! HRP
