The seller of this 1967 Catalina station wagon states right away the the car has its share of ‘dings, scratches and other imperfections’ and the honesty is appreciated but this appears to be a very nice survivor imperfections or not! The red paint which is believed to be mostly original is complemented by an interesting white two-tone that covers the roof and extends to the rear pillars and to the top of the tailgate. If the nearly all red exterior isn’t enough, take a look inside and you’ll see a beautiful red interior throughout. You can find this very nice survivor on Ebay in Bowling Green. Kentucky where bidding had hit $7,100 early in the auction.
The low mileage survivors just keep on coming! This 1988 Buick LeSabre is reported to have just under 29K miles, or just 1,000 per year since it rolled off the showroom floor. The story goes that the car was purchased by a woman who loved to pamper her wagon and would take it to woody car shows where it was well received. She sold it to another enthusiast who maintained the wagon to high standards as well. Found on Ebay in Redmond, Washington, there was plenty of interest with the reserve already met in the first few days of the auction.

Is there anything nicer than a vintage pillarless station wagon? I’ve always wondered why they has such a short run. Rambler made the first 4 door hardtop station wagon in 1956 and for a short time just about every car manufacturer offered pillarless wagons but it was Chrysler who made them the longest and they may have made the prettiest hardtop wagons. This 1962 Chrysler Newport station wagon looks like an unbelievable find at $8,000. You can find it on Craigslist in Woodstock, Illinois.

This Bel Air was originally sold in Cheyenne, Wyoming and remained with the owner for 40 years and has had just one owner since. The dry climate has been good to the Bel Air as the sheet metal is rust free and all original. A replacement of the carpets allowed the seller to take a good look at the floors and they were found to be absolutely rust free as well. Listed on Ebay in Arvada, Colorado, expect this beautiful Bel Air survivor to have plenty of interest as survivor cars like this one are very rare.

Vintage wagons tend to evoke memories of long vacations, a car filled with kids and Sunday picnics in the country when the day was truly set aside for family relaxation.

Listed on Ebay and located in Lakeville, Massachusetts this well preserved Country Sedan has a BIN of $25,000 but the seller is open to offers.

Described as an unrestored time capsule this 30,679 mile Catalina wagon is certainly one of the more desirable wagons we’ve come across. Pontiac’s crisp clean styling was in full force by 1964 and they didn’t miss a beat in executing their wagon designs. The white/red color combination looks fantastic (don’t all 60’s cars look great in white/red!) and the 8 lug wheels and 389 V8 are pure Pontiac excitement. Listed on Ebay in Wentzville, Missouri this one owner masterpiece has a BIN of $32,000.
