    Answering the earlier question, who made 2-door wagons? I can't promise that this is 100% correct, but it's pretty close:

    FORD
    Fullsize 49-51 (woodies), 52-61 (all steel)
    Falcon 60-65
    Pinto 72-79

    MERCURY
    Fullsize 49-51 (woodies), 56-59 (all steel; unique 2-dr hardtop 57-59)
    Comet 60-62

    EDSEL 58 only

    CHEVROLET
    Fullsize 55-59 (maybe '60?)
    Nomad 55-57 (unique hardtop doors/roof)
    Chevelle 64-65
    Vega/Monza 71-79
    (Nova: never)

    PONTIAC
    Fullsize 55-56
    Safari 55-57 (like Nomad)

    PLYMOUTH 49-58

    DODGE 53-57

    STUDEBAKER
    Fullsize 53-57
    Lark 59-?

    RAMBLER 50-55, 59-63

    WILLYS JEEP 46-59 (later too)

    INTERNATIONAL & AMC PACER, but who cares?

    Never saw a 2-door from Olds or Buick.
    I've seen nice 2-door custom conversions of a 51ish Chevy, a 66-67 Nova, and a 66 Galaxie.

    I think that's the whole list. If you know of any I missed, please let me know.

    Station wagons are good for having sex in the back of them.

    I also have a 56 Volvo 445 with plenty of "Patina" and a Nailhead.

    My daily driver has a long roof and 2-doors...

    1955 GMC Suburban Carryall. GMC 270 under the hood. Almost 50 years of Northwest rain forest patina on the outside.
     
  11. Chevy only made a 4 door wagon in 61.........Shiny
     
  12. Pontiac also made a two door wagon in 57, at least in Canada

  13. They also made these, but I don't ever remember seeing one in the last 25 years. I have seen a 58 Pontiac sedan delivery, like the one above, though. Our provincial utility companies used sedan deliveries and panels a lot in the fifties and sixties, so there were quite a few kicking around years ago.

  14. Shiny is right. Last Chevy 2-door wagon was the 60 Sedan Delivery and the 60 2-door Brookwood. Well... that's not true. In 64 Chevy also did a 2-door Malibu wagon, I believe.

    I always wanted to take a 59 2-door Brookwood (glass) and chop it 2" so I can use the hardtop/convt glass and then turn it into a phantom 2-door Nomad.

    Sick, huh?!

  15. 'nother one. Didn't have a pic for a 59 though. Again, never ever saw one

    Great additions, all you guys. I was completely unaware of the 57 and 60 pontiac 2-doors, although I realize that many Canadian models were never offered in the US. I have seen some early (49-52 era) Pontiac deliveries, but no windowed 2-doors.

    Sorry to have slighted the Chevy Suburban guys. They even made a 3-door wagon!

    Many of these must have been incredibly rare. I've seen a couple of fullsize '60 Fords, but never a '61 (although the '61 shows up in Tad Burness' Spotter's Guide). I've seen one '56 Merc, but never a '55. Several of the others appear in print, but I've never seen a live one. Kinda fun to hunt for them, though.
     
  17. Here's one somebody SHOULD build!
