1971 Ford LTD Country Squire Station Wagon

 

 I searched for the right station wagon for several years until finding this one. It needed to be an original, rust free, late 60s – early 70s example, with a roof rack, "wood panelling", third row seating, and a “magic door gate”.

 This wagon actually has just under 48,000 ORIGINAL miles. That's right, not 148,000 but 48,000! I have records that show this. No it is not rolled over and yes I am sure based on records. It drives like it as well. It features the original 400 cid. motor with a C6 automatic on the column. One of my additional and also essential requirements was that the wagon have a clear history and service records. The original owner had this Classic in excess of twenty years. He started taking notes from the very beginning recording oil changes/alignments/tire rotations...and created a file of the brochures, window sticker, build sheet... His notes show very consistent maintenance which,  in addition to the condition, verify that the miles are correct.  The original owners’ manual and Ziebart rust proof warranty were in the glove box as you would expect from a very caring, original owner. All of these documents greatly contributed to my purchasing of the vehicle. This Wagon has always been a California, rust and bondo free example. Mechanically it is perfect and I never hesitate about driving it to the beach hours away, camping, or wherever. Anything can happen to an older mechanical device but I know of no reason a motivated buyer should be concerned about driving this car back to California. It is absolutely a survivor. The paint is faded, but the body is straight with perfect gaps. NO rust, no body filler, no door sags, no cracks, dents, dings- all gaps are correct with perfectly aligned body panels. All exterior trim is intact and as new. Perfect if you are looking for something nostalgic, reliable, practical and eye catching to cruise in with some patina. My plan was to just leave it that way it is because I enjoy the look and it's only original once. It would make a great candidate for new paint and wood decals but that's not what I wanted. It is a great cruiser, that gets looks everywhere it goes. Mechanically it has been completely gone through and anything needed has been done. It ran good when I purchased it but needed some attention and maintenance to satisfy me and my desire to have zero potential issues. During the last year, my shop replaced the water pump, brakes lines with custom fabricated steel, all front-end components, shocks/suspension, stainless custom fabricated fuel lines, all tires, an alignment, electronic distributer conversion and a complete tune up. Several months ago the transmission modulator shown signs of fatigue and was replaced. The glove box door lock was replaced and keyed with an OEM part. The interior is near perfect with no tears in the seats, burns, rips.... (the original headliner is beginning to sag in a couple of spots currently) I had the front seat reupholstered with the remaining seats original and near perfect.  Power windows, power brakes, power locks, power steering and automatic transmission. No air conditioning. Glass is all chip and scratch free. She drives as quiet and smooth as a new car. The vehicle is great and I have used it to travel as both a daily driver at times or just a weekend cruiser. I have gone to car shows and cruise ins with others that drive modern super cars, custom builds and more...and my Wagon garners the biggest crowds. It's very funny but people love the memories, especially the facing rear seats that can fold away flat. Room for 8 or sheets of plywood! It has been great to me, never letting me down or leaving me stranded, and always getting me compliments and looks.  Having been around old cars for most of my life, this one still impresses me every time with how unique, and fun it is.
