Ebay find Impala Wagon


#1

Family transporters have gone through plenty of popularity swings over the years. Station wagons used to be the default option for family trips. Based primarily on rear-wheel-drive, body-on-frame platforms, they could tow motorhomes or boats, cruise comfortably, and carry kids with their necessary detritus while providing drivers the feel of a normal sedan or muscle car.

I am hopping back on the wagon bandwagon. Just picked up this 1967 Country Squire 428. Factory air, power windows, 8 passenger. Has not run since 1983.

Insured with Hagerty of course!

What a find!

I am sucker for good wood paneling. Combine that with a 428 and you’ve got a great hot rod wagon.

What are your plans with it? Be sure to start a thread in the Ford section here so we can all keep up with the progress!

Due to the low production off the 428 equipped wagons, I will be preserving as much as possible. Get it mechanically sound and keep it as original as I can as it has the original paint etc.

I have been looking for a Station Wagon with a factory four speed for some time. Kinda gave up two years ago and bought a 1962 Impala four door sedan with a 327 and a factory four speed. Recently however I was crusing the cars for sale at the Fall Jefferson Meet and found a 1964 Nova Station Wagon with a 283 and a factory four speed. It even had a rare factory in dash Tachometer. The folks that have seen it since I bought it seem almost as excited as I am with it. Wagon’s Rock
