Ford Fairlane Squire wagons are such nice wagons as it is but throw in a factory ordered 390 V8 you’re looking at some giddyup performance that was normally reserved for the GT Fairlanes. With only 8,438 Fairlane Squires produced in 1967 the numbers with the 390 option have to be a fraction of that output. Although the seller of this Fairlane says a new lifter and battery are needed, this looks like a great buy at the listed price of $6,800. You can find this Fairlane on Craigslist just outside of Chicago in Lemont, Illinois.
1964 was sadly the last year of hardtop station wagons being produced in the U.S. with Chrysler being the last car maker to grace us with these pillarless beauties. There were less than 2,000 Dodge Custom 880 wagons built and only a handful that could possibly remain, so this Dodge wagon is a pretty rare sight. With an asking price of $10,750, you can find this big Dodge on Craigslist in Berthoud, Colorado.

A ‘one gal’ owner form new, this 1955 Belvedere is available for the first time in over 60 years. There has been one repaint that is described as ‘done the right way’ but otherwise this 70,028 mile Plymouth looks to be all original. I absolutely love the two-tone ‘Miami Blue’ and White which looks fantastic with the painted wheels and dog dish caps. This Plymouth is listed on Craigslist in Lemon Heights, California with an asking price of $22,500.

It’s unusual enough to find an early 60’s Mercedes wagon in the states so to find this custom coach built wagon is extremely rare. Hess & Eisenhardt were perhaps the best know of the U.S coach builders and for the Germans it was Binz GmbH & Co who are still in business today. There is little know of the history of this wagon but based on receipts the seller determined that it resided in British Columbia until the early 1980’s when it was moved to Sacramento, California. Needing a full restoration, the Mercedes has a $20,000 BIN on Ebay.
