This is Aunt Edna. She is a 1977 Ford LTD Country Squire. These kings of the road once ruled the automotive landscape, now slowly being forgotten. She was found under a tree in 2004, sitting for three years. It had mold growing inside the windows and was being used for storage by the farmer that owned it. I paid $150....shes come a long way since then. The paint looked orange it was so badly faded, the wood sides where white, and the whole brake system was shot.....it took some labor and a lot of love....but its been worth it.
When I was driving home in November of 2005, I hit a deer at 65 mph in the Chicago burbs. I found a salvage yard where I go to school in Macomb, IL (home of WIU), I repainted the front clip, and replaced it my apt. parking lot.
This video was taken at whim. I was playing with my digital camera and I discovered that it could record. This was also the last time the wagon was able to drive. In January of 2007, my head gasket blew. I sent it to a local shop in Macomb, IL called D_D's Garage. He had the car for three months to fix it. It was never right. I took it back to Chicago, Aunt Edna over heated and cracked a head. I had her towed back to D_D's Garage, where he had it for another four months. He scamed me, I now have a car that longer is driveable. But Aunt Edna is getting another engine this spring.
And yes, that is Close Encounters of the Third Kind playing on 8 track.

We finally did what everyone was asking for! We took a Hot Sexy girl off
roading in a Ford Raptor. We found our own private road to tear up, it gets
even rougher toward the end of the video.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
