Country Squires of the Silverscreen
The legendary Ford Country Squire was not only the "Wagonmaster" of the
American Road, the Country Squire was widely used in film, especially in
the 1960's thru the early 1980's. Sit back and watch, see if you can figure
out some of the TV shows and movies in this video.
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.

Video from the Joey Chitwood Show captured from VHS...not for
redistribution. Distributed by Diamond P Sports which is non-existent.
Attempted to reach them by the number on the video and I get an audio
message for "Live Talk" what ever that is.
Used to love seeing this show every year growing up. Corey Scott
(motorcycle stuntman) unfortunately perished doing what he loved.

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

1977 Ford LTD Country Squire drive
I shot a small video in March driving the wagon around Macomb Ill, where I
used to attend college at. I did some repair work to the engine to get her
running better but she still needs the engine rebuilt. At times you can see
the camera vibrate, this is due to a bad miss in the engine.
Starting a '76 Country Squire
My friend Luke and I trying to start and idle a 1976 Ford LTD Country
Squire station wagon.
It sat in the woods only occasionally being started for about 5-6 years.
I will try to answer comments as best that I can, but keep in mind I am not
the 'car guy'. So the answers may take awhile.
