Walk around of my new 1991 FORD LTD Country Squire wagon
My tax refund and a big job I completed gave me some extra cash, so when I
found this wagon on craigslist, I had to have it. I'd been causally surfing
CL for a '90 or '91 Country Squire or Colony Park for years, but never
found one affordable or in good shape until now. This wagon was actually
traded in by the original owners at a local Ford dealer for a new car!
1964 FORD COUNTRY SQUIRE STATION WAGON -- EXCELLENT EXAMPLE
Gaze at this excellent example of a Ford wagon. To me what is so amazing
is the condition of the Din-Noc wood paneling along the sides for most wood
grain decals don't last this long and replacement decals are extremely hard
to find. There are two choices for Ford wagons this year. The less
expensive model is labled the Country Sedan and the example shown here is
the upper level wagon, the Country Squire. Both wagon models were four
doors with either 6 or 9 passenger seating. This wagon is a six seater.
The 64 Ford is the best looking big Fords of the decade and today they
still retain those good looks. This Country Squire had a retail price of
$3,029 and 23, 570 with six seats were produced this year. The 9 seat
wagon cost $3,099 and 23,120 of those were sold. The big wagons demanded
big engines so there were three to choose from: all V8's, 352 cid / 250
bhp., the 390 cid with 300 - 330 bhp., and the 427 cid with between 410 -
425 horses. This example has the 352. Looking over this wagon you will
see the engine compartment is appearing new, the paint and trim is in
excellent condition, and again the wood paneling is very good along with
the luggage rack. Love those famous large round Ford taillights. Thanks
very much for viewing this hardy 1964 Ford Country Squire Station Wagon.
1989 Mercury Colony Park
My 1989 Mercury Colony Park Wagon. A fellow youtuber has an 89 country
squire with a walkaround video so i thought id do the same. Im still
getting used to my new camera so any suggestions is much appreciated. It
has 198000 miles and still going strong. I dont see many colony park videos
here so i thought id add one and there will be more to come! Please rate
Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

Wagons of Steel
A video tribute to the great American station wagon set to music. Turn up
the sound and enjoy the awesome woodgrain paneling we all remember so well
of the big four, Ford, GM, Chrysler, and AMC. Thank You for watching
Country Squire Tribute
This is my personal tribute to a great singer and an American legend, the
Ford LTD Country Squire. You know when someone or something of our culture
has truly made it when its on South Park or The Simpsons.
I found this song by accident on I Tunes. I have never heard of Thom
Shepard till now. I recommend his other songs, they are really well done.
He also wrote Riding with Private Malone, that singer David Ball came out
with in 2000-2001ish.
Most of the pictures where pulled off http://www.imcdb.org/search.php
however, there are a few from my personal collection of CS wagons. The
second before the last, is when my red '77 CS made its day view late
October 2005. You can hardly see it but its back there.
It's sad to see great motor cars like these slowly be forgotten. Like the
others in its day,Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, Chevrolet Kingswood Estate, and
many others, may we never forget what these cars did for the American
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.
