This Dodge Monaco is giving me some serious 70’s flashbacks. It feels like the entire Brady family is ready to jump in for a Grand Canyon excursion and we know that means Jan is going to be a pain in the ass the whole trip! Well, a quick internet search shows that the Brady family were a Mopar wagon family so my suspicions are confirmed. Flashbacks aside this is one nice Monaco. With only 2,500 of these made, this is a rare one and it looks to be in great shape. Located in Colorado and listed on Ebay the bidding was at $7,995 with the reserve met at the time of this posting.
For a car company that was ubiquitous with economy and affordability this 1978 AMC Matador is one loaded family hauler. Red is the theme throughout and the woodgrain siding is much as you’ll ever see on a wagon. Beautiful throughout, this 80,000 mile very well maintained wagon is out of Denver, Colorado and listed on Ebay where the bidding was very active early in the auction.
Everything about this Falcon 2 door wagon exudes daily driver. The paint is just OK, there are a few bumps, bruises and scratches. A tire is mismatched and the kick panels are missing. With all that you might think I’m being critical but I wouldn’t change a thing about this car. It’s the perfect daily driver! Plenty of cool factor driving around town but no worries about any of the imperfections. You can find this wagon on Ebay in Beverly Hills, California where the bid was at $2,965 with the reserve unmet at the time of this posting.
I’m always intrigued by low mileage cars that have been stored away for years and seemingly forgotten. Last week Hemmings featured a 1961 Plymouth Valiant that had sat unnoticed in a garage for 53 years with only 4,263 miles on the odometer before being uncovered by a neighbor. This 1962 Rambler beats the Plymouth’s low miles with just 4,052 and has sat stored in a garage for over 50 years. This Rambler is for sale at Aazzee’s Auto Salvage in Bemidji, Minnesota.

With a 383 V8, flowmaster type exhaust and Magnum chrome wheels this Coronet 500 is more of a muscle wagon than a typical family hauler but why not have both? Throw in third row seating to bring the passenger capacity to nine and Dad can easily haul the team around with a little bit of performance to wow the kiddies. Professionally repainted from an original California car, this Coronet is listed on Craigslist in Santan, Arizona with an asking price of $24,900.
This 85,000 mile Ford Falcon has tons of documentation including the original window sticker, owners card, manual and and repair receipts going back to the 1960’s. The seller purchased the car from an 80 year old man last year and though it’s not clear if he was the original owner it is believed that the car has spent its entire life in Pasedena, California. Listed on Ebay at no reserve, the Squire has plenty of early bidding with the top bid at $5,400 as of this posting.
