Forgotten in a basement garage of a rural Virginian orphanage for 40 years this Mercury Commuter was discovered only after the house that served as the orphanage was scheduled for demolition in 2015. A full restoration is needed but the car looks to be complete and being a hardtop this is one desirable wagon! The original “Wash Lawn” orphanage graphics are still on the tailgate- it sure would be a cool homage to the orphanage if they were kept when this big Merc gets restored! You can find this Mercury Commuter on Ebay in Richburg, South Carolina witha BIN of $5,500
Having spent its entire motoring existence in Oklahoma this Ebay find Ranch Wagon is ready for a new life. Looking completely stock and missing nothing essential, the next owner has an open canvas on what the next stage will be. Get her up and running as is for a daily driver? A stock restoration? or perhaps a hot rod surfer wagon is in this wagons future. In any case, with a very straight and solid looking body the next owner will be be off to a great start in whatever project he chooses.
With 2 doors and a 4 speed Dagenham transmission this certainly is one rare Falcon. In fact, according to the seller this is only 1 of 2 two door wagons with a 4 speed configuration. Does rare mean valuable? This certainly looks like a quality restoration but even the nicest of Falcon wagons rarely commands prices that approach 20K and the Ebay seller of this fine Falcon has a BIN of $21,900. Does the rarity justify the price?
1960 Plymouth Station Wagons are a pretty rare site as it is so when I clicked on this Ebay find I had to do a double take. This isn’t your everyday rare Mopar wagon this is the super rare two door version of which only five are know to exist according to the seller. Turns out this isn’t the first time this finned masterpiece has shown up on Ebay. In January of 2017 it was auctioned off as you can see on this Barn Finds listing.
Surf wagons have been around almost as long as surfers themselves. Surf boards were often over ten feet long and very heavy so a day at the beach required a special vehicle for hauling your boards and what’s better than a station wagon to do the job? You could strap them on the roof or easily throw them in the cargo area. A good surf wagon can really be whatever you make of it, they can be rat rods with plenty of patina or they can be high end street rod wagons. This Monterey Commuter wagon is a gleaming restoration that is mostly stock but with just enough surf touches to make it the envy of any beach outing. Found on Hemmings in Charleston, South Carolina the seller is asking $35,500 OBO.
Nothing says 1972 like Orange and Avacado Green- an omnipresent color palette that seemed to permeate America that year right down my parents kitchen remodel. While there is no Avacodo Green to be found on this AMC Ambassador, this is the orange I remember not so fondly, but times change an I think this is a striking color for a 70’s era station wagon with faux wood siding . AMC actually called this ‘Trans Am Red’ but I guess orange was the new red in the 70’s! Found on Craigslist near Dallas, this 360 V8 powered has a price of $10,900 OBO.
