1958 MERCURY COMMUTER STATION WAGON -- SLIGHTLY CUSTOMIZED
UPDATE: This Merc was returned to this dealership and is for sale. I was
very fortunate to capture this beauty with my camera for 20 minutes later
an antique car transporter picked this up to deliver to it's new owner.
What a find! Beautiful metallic paint, wide white walls on tasteful
wheels, reconditioned interior all add up to make this a stunning custom.
1958 was the second year of Mercury's space age design with sheet metal
sculpture all around. There are 3 station wagon offerings and include the
Commuter, Voyager and Colony Park. All wagons were either 2 or 4 door, 6
passenger or 9 passenger. The engines provided for wagons were all V8's
ranging from 383 cid / 312 - 330 bhp., or a 430 cid / 360 - 400 horses.
Mercury still have matching front and back massive bumpers and that space
gun looking design running along the rear side culminating into the famous
wedge-shaped taillight. Push button controls are still used for
transmission gear selection. There were 8,601 of these 4-door 6 passenger
wagons made under the Commuter name this year. The more I see these 57-58
Mercury's the more I'm in appreciation of them as a prime example of
fifties excess but also sculpted metal works of art. Thanks very much for
viewing this 1958 Mercury Commuter station wagon.
2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon vs. Icon Derelict! - Head 2 Head Ep. 41
On this week's episode of Head 2 Head, certified wagon-freak Jonny
Lieberman pits two of the very coolest station wagons in the world against
each other. More than just cool, these are also two of the rarest wagons on
earth. In fact, the E63 AMG Wagon is the rarest car Mercedes sells in the
U.S. It's special order only through the dealer — it's not even on their
website. Of course, the Icon Derelict is its own form of rare, being one of
one. The Derelict started life out back in 1952 as a Chrysler Town &
Country Custom Wagon, but things have changed. As for the E63 Wagon, we
learned at Best Driver's Car that the stealthy Mercedes is quicker than
several supercars. But does it have what it takes to defeat Icon's icon?
Watch and find out!

71 Ford Country Sedan Runs & Drives - $1,450
Remember when mom used to take you kids and your bikes everywhere in the
station wagon?? Well, daddy got ahold of this one and put lake pipes on it!
This 1971 Ford Galaxy 500 Country Sedan Station Wagon survivor has a 429
under the hood. Yes, we know there was an error in the size of the motor in
the video. But getting past that, this car starts right up every time. The
seats and vast majority of the interior are good. Admittedly it can use
some fixing up, but the heat works fine and its got A/C, nice wheels, and
dual Exhaust. There is a new
alternator, a new regulator, new brakes--front hub out, new starter relay,
new Monroe shocks (heavy duty on front--heavy duty air on back), a new
ignition switch and of course the Lake pipes. This is a good running,
driving car that can be a daily driver while you restore it.

vehicles are offered subject to an inspection and an appraisal if desired.

Hot Rod Station Wagon [S6 Ep.9-1]
Station Wagons...Love them or hate them, we all have some stories to tell
about them! But most of us have never dreamed that a wagon could be a Hot
rod or cool custom...but they can! Today on GEARZ, Stacey shows how much
fun a wagon can be when it has an LS engine under the hood, and two four
barrel carburetors sitting on it. If you ever wanted to thrash your Dad's
old Wagon, this is the show for you! After that Stacey digs into some of
the most asked questions regarding shooting waterborne paint, and finally
we take a trip to Texas to see how one body-man created his own business by
selling tools, instead of using them. If you are looking for a new career,
this could be your answer.
2015 Volvo V60 Sport Wagon Review and Road Test
There was a time when wagons roamed the interstates ferrying families from
one National Lampoon vacation to another. With the rise of the crossover,
those looking for the original "looks practical but handles like a sedan"
mode of transport have few options and most of them live in the luxury
segment. Let's count them before we go too far. We have the
soon-to-be-cancelled TSX, the last-generation Cadillac CTS (the new wagon
may arrive next year) Jetta, E-Class, 3-Series and Prius V. Even if you
expand things to include "off-road wagons"the list only grows by three
(Allroad, Outback and XC70.) Despite the shrinking market, Volvo's brand
has long been associated with practical wagons that it's almost hard to
believe it has been three full years since Volvo sold one in America.
That's about to change with the 2015 V60.
Back in 2010 Volvo was selling two wagons in America. The V50 was based on
the compact S40 sedan and the V70 shared its soul with Volvo's 5-series
competitor the S80. Although the V70 is still sold in Europe and the V40
(the replacement for the V50) splashed down in 2013, Americans will have to
settle for Volvo's middle child: the V60 wagon. Based on Volvo's S60 sedan,
the V60 competes internationally with wagon variants of the 3-Series,
C-Class, Audi A4 and many others. But this is America and Volvo's only
direct competitor is the BWM 328i xDrive wagon. More on that later.
Despite ditching the boxy form years ago, Volvo's style remains the
automotive Birkenstock to BMW's Prada. The entire Volvo lineup in America
(except for the XC90) received a 2014 face lift with a more aggressive
grille and more creases in the hood. Volvo has finally tucked their radar
cruise control module behind a plastic panel that blends into the grille
rather than sticking out like a gray sore thumb. Out back we get bumper
cover integrates Exhausts, a large
black surround on the rear glass that made me wish it was separately
hinged, and a continuation of those oh-so-sexy Swedish hips. Volvo's
engineers kept the V60's roofline fairly high at the rear, but even the
Swedes have given in to modern "coupé" styling cues, most notable in the
greenhouse shape. The raked rear glass which looks sexier but takes a toll
on cargo space.
Birkenstocks are comfy. Prada? Hit and miss. (Or so I'm told.) And so it is
with Volvo and BMW interiors. The S60 on which the V60 is based is now 5
years old. Aside from massaging color and trim options, the only
substantive changes to the interior since it was launched is Volvo's LCD
disco dash, a new steering wheel with shift paddles (optional) and a new
gear shift knob. Despite its age, the Scandinavian chic cabin has what it
takes to complete with BMW, especially now that the 3-Series has gone
slightly down-market with more hard plastics in this generation. My only
major gripe is the small 7-inch infotainment display that is clearly
outclassed by BMW's ginormous iDrive screen.
The V60 has been priced aggressively for 2015 starting at $35,300 that's an
$800 upsell over then S60 and $6,150 less than a base 3-series wagon.
Adjusting for feature content, the base V60 is still $5,000 less. If
bargain wagons with premium badges are your thing, the TSX is king at
$31,985 starting but the delta shrinks to less than two grand when you
adjust for the V60's feature set. The $36,800 might be the more appropriate
competitor for the AWD-only 3-wagon, but a more interesting match up is the
$44,300 V60 T6 AWD. Configuring a 3 or the CTS wagon with the same
equipment you find on the Volvo will set you back at least $2,000 more. In
addition to the value factor, the Volvo brings 35% more power to the fight.
The extra power and AWD go a long way in compensating for the better weight
balance in the BMW or the Caddy. Since GM hasn't refreshed their wagon yet
the 3.0 and 3.6 liter V6 engined are outclassed in every metric by the
Swede. Option your V60 with every conceivable option and you end up at
As a former Volvo wagon owner I'm probably biased, but all the reasons I
opted for a Swedish cargo hauler in 2006 apply to the V60. Aside from the
fact that "value" strikes a fire in my loins, the Volvo is the clear
performance option in this segment. Want more shove than the $44,300 Volvo?
Pony up $64,900 for the CTS-V wagon or $102,370 for an E63 AMG wagon. I'll
reserve my final judgement until I can get my hands on one for a more
thorough evaluation, but in the mean time the V60 is quite simply the best
performance and value option in this phone booth sized segment.

1958 PLYMOUTH CUSTOM SUBURBAN STATION WAGON - VERY RARE
1957 & '58 PLYMOUTHS SOLD WELL ENOUGH BUT FEW ARE AROUND TODAY INTACT.
THEY TURNED INTO RUST BUCKETS EARLY. THE '57 MODEL PLYMOUTH INTRODUCED A
NEW RADICAL DESIGN AND A FEW FEATURE CHANGES GRACED THE 58'S. THE PLYMOUTH
MODELS STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM WERE: PLAZA, SAVOY, BELVEDERE, SUBURBAN AND
TOP OF THE LINE FURY. SUBURBAN MODELS WERE ALL STATION WAGONS. IN 1957,
WAGONS SOLD 102,000 UNITS. IN 1958, WAGONS SOLD 129,000 UNITS. WITH THIS
MANY STATION WAGONS SOLD IN TWO MODEL YEARS YOU WOULD THINK THERE WOULD BE
MORE SURVIVORS. IT WAS THE RUST THAT DID THEM IN PARTICULARILY AROUND THE
HEADLIGHT " EYEBROWS ". THIS WAGON SHOWN COSTS $2,607 AND WAS POWERED BY A
V-8, 350 CID ENGINE. BUT LOOK AT THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR WITH JUST OVER
67,000 MILES. THE FIFTIES TYPE INTERIOR IS PERFECT. GREAT LOOKING DASH
WITH THOSE WONDERFUL PUSH BUTTON CONTROLS, PERFECT SEAT UPHOSTERY, AND
PERFECT HEADLINER. ALL THE CHROME AND TRIM SEEMS FLAWLESS. ALL IT NEED IS
SOME BODY WORK ESPECIALLY OVER THE HEADLIGHTS, AND NEW PAINT AND THIS WOULD
BE A PERFECT RESTORATION. Another rare original survivor brought to you by
55lincoln. THANKS SO MUCH FOR VIEWING.
