Beautifully restored 1959 Mercury 20th anniversary Colony Park Country Cruiser 9 passenger wagon. A wood accented marble white exterior along with a red/silver interior really makes this 4 door hardtop wagon a standout. Found on Ebay, the wagon comes equipped with a 383/280hp V8, power steering, power brakes, 4 way power seat and a rear power window. This looks like a quality restoration of a rare top of the line 50′s hardtop wagon that won’t come cheap.

Filed Under (Mercury) by Station Wagon Finder on 11-10-2011

Update 11/15/2011: Car sold for $24,500

This 1957 Mercury Voyager 9 passenger station wagon found on ebay has been in Nevada its entire existence including the last 20 years in a museum.  The car is described as ‘totally rust free and solid as a rock.’ Judging from the pictures, it’s hard to disagree. The options include a numbers matching 290 horsepower 362 V8, Merc-O-Matic transmission, power seats and a third row seat. The seller says the car has been repainted once the right way and sanded to a smooth finish. The chrome and trim pieces are 100% original and in beautiful condition.

The inside of the car is 100% original down to the rubber mats. The few imperfections include a small tear on drivers side, a couple of loose seams in the headliner and a few small cracks in the steering wheel.

Mechanically, the wagon is said to start and drive flawlessly with no squeaks or rattles.

With hardtop styling, classic 2-tone paint and a desirable Turnpike Cruiser engine this rare Voyager is one of the nicer 1950′s wagon finds.

4,516 Original Miles: 1983 Mercury Colony Park Country Squire

Filed Under (Mercury) by Station Wagon Finder on 05-05-2011

Found in a barn in 2007 with only 3,774 miles this early eighties behemoth rivals the Griswald Wagon. Like most Ford wagons of the day, faux wood paneling adorns the car, and being a Grand Marquis the interior has all the creature comforts of the day. Given the role of the family station wagon, it’s pretty hard to find a low mileage original, but with only 4,516 miles this truly is a rare find. Found on Ebay, this is the kind of car that should give you years of relatively easy service.

The owner states that all the fluids were replaced and the car was gone through with a fine tooth comb replacing anything that wasn’t perfect using OEM parts. He also states that it is an excellent runner.

Yes, it will cost you plenty to fill up, but wouldn’t this be the perfect car to bring the family to Wally World in?
