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.

Super low mileage cars are always appealing but they get a little tricky to verify when there’s more wear to be seen like on this 1969 Ford Country Sedan with a reported 15,500 miles. The car was believed to be used as a summer car only but ended up in garage storage 20 plus years ago. It was said to have run when it was stored away but the new owner believes it needs the fuel system cleaned and brakes bled to make it roadworthy again. With the faded paint and some developing rust it’s safe to say that it has spent a fair amount of time outdoors over the past 48 years and at first glance many would say there is no way it’s such a low mile car but it still has some tires that are said to be original which upon inspection shouldn’t be too difficult to verify and the interior looks to be in excellent shape, far better condition that you would see on a car whose clock has turned. Located in Logan, Utah and listed on Collector Car Ads, the seller is asking $4,000 OBO.
This 1964 Ford Country Sedan is an exceptional one owner 9 passenger wagon with just 74,000 original miles. Unfortunately the seller doesn’t give us too many pictures but what he did post leaves me wanting to see much more. Here’s what we do know- the car was repainted in 2000, the interior is all original and described as immaculate, there are 3 bench seats and it is powered by a 289 V8 with a cruise-o-matic transmission. That’s it! Show us more! You can find this beauty on Craigslist near Minneapolis with a $20,000 asking price.
I’m a huge fan of Fords Squire wagons. Maybe more than any other station wagon they evoke the idea the American vacation where Dad wakes up the kids at the crack of dawn, loads up the crew in the freshly washed and waxed wagon and heads to the Grand Canyon complete with all the hokey roadside attractions only to find that Missy doesn’t do so well without her Dramamine- should’ve opted for the expensive air conditioning!
This 1962 Ford Country Squire is out of long term storage and ready to see the light of day once again. The seller has owned the car for 30 years and had purchased it from the original owner where it had been garaged its whole life. After his purchase it was used as a daily driver for a few years before going into long term storage. The Country Squire is listed on Ebay and located in Bangor, Pennsylvania.
