Wisconsin Junkyard Part 2
Kenney and I journey though a Wisconsin junkyard. While a great friend
Kenny makes a poor camera man. Sorry about that guys. Lots cool old cars
and old school muscle. I really wanted to take them all home and restore
them. My Favorites were the 69 Chevelle, the 66 Impala, and Ford LTD.
FORD We are family
A parade of forgotten Ford land barges from the late 60's and 70's. Many
of us fondly remember climbing into a huge Country Squire, LTD, or spacious
midsize Thunderbird for the family road trip. These 2.5 ton battle wagons
didnt fold up like tin foil when hit, like a new Accord or bounce you to
death like a new front wheel drive "family sedan". Most are now gone, but
not forgotten, we all remember the rumble of their 460 V-8 powerplants that
could acually tow a travel trailer.
Ford Country Squire The Wagon Master
Sit back, turn up the sound and imagine you are the Griswold's. Featured
are Country Squires from 1959 to 1987, huge chrome monsters, laced with
woodgrain paneling, and room for half the basketball team. These are the
SUV's of the 50' 60's and 70's, great cars with lots of room, class and
plenty of power to tow.
1963 Ford Galaxie Country Squire Wagon STK # 1088
Did the original owner want to tow but need to haul a family or did he have
a hot rod and did not want to give up the power and muscle for the family?
Whoever he is, his order was cast for this rare 1963 Ford Galaxie Country
Squire because it is a factory big block car with a 4 speed manual
transmission. The original 390ci expired and the motor was replace with a
428ci V8 Cobra Jet motor attached to the original 4 speed manual. Painted
the original Corinthian White with wood exterior with light beige D/L and
pearl beige interior. Originally built and sold out of Ford's L.A. assembly
line and district sales office. The door tag confirms this Country Squires
rarity with an axle code of 5 for a 3.50:1 rear gear and trans code of 5
for a 4 speed manual transmission. The original owner obviously wanted the
meanest wagon on the block able to destroy unassuming muscle cars in
California that would never imagine what was packaged next to them or tow
the camper to the country for a nice weekend. Either way this is a special
car with a unique order combination seldom found today. For more details on
this vehicle or to inquire about financing please call us at 704-598-2130

1958 CHEVY YEOMAN STATION WAGON, READY FOR RESTORATION
ALL THIS RARE STATION WAGON NEEDS IS A FRESH COAT OF PAINT. THE INTERIOR
IS IN GREAT CONDITION. THE GLASS, THE CHROME IS ALL THERE AND FLAWLESS.
SAME WITH THE GRILLE AND BUMPERS. THE BISCAYNE / YEOMAN STATION WAGON WAS
AT THE LOW END OF THE '58 MODELS. ALTHOUGH 1958 SAW 195,583 CHEVY WAGONS
IN ALL MODELS SOLD THIS YEAR, THE LOW END YEOMAN 2 AND 4 DOOR WAGONS WERE
A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OVERALL CHEVY WAGONS SOLD. THIS ONE SOLD FOR $2,467
WITH THE L HEAD 6 ENGINE. THE L6 ENGINE WAS A 235 CID WITH ONLY 145 BHP.
SORT OF A WEAK ENGINE FOR THIS CARGO HAULER. BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN
ORDERED WITH A V8 283 CID WITH AS MUCH AS 230 BHP. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A
GOOD CHOICE OF ENGINE TO PULL THIS 3,740 LB. VEHICLE. THIS FEATURE WAGON
IS THE KIND OF ORIGINAL SURVIVOR THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO RESTORE. ALL THAT
RUST AND WEAR TO SAND OFF AND APPLY NEW TROPIC TURQUOISE PAINT. IT APPEARS
THAT THE WHEELS HAVE BEEN REPAINTED IN ORIGINAL AEGEAN TURQUOISE PAINT.
THIS RARE WAGON IS INDEED READY FOR RESTORATION. Another original survivor
car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
