The muscle car was born when someone dropped a big block into a midsize body. So, what do you get when you take a stripper station wagon and option it with a big block? Well, the combination may not be as potent, but this muscle wagon is a lot more functional. You can take the whole family to drag strip and still have room to pick up a couple sheets of plywood on the way home! This big bruiser is located in Englewood, Colorado and is listed here on craigslist for $5,500.
The Country Sedan was a little less extravagant than the Country Squire, but that makes it the perfect place to start if you want an unassuming muscle machine. There’s a bench seat, column shift, and not much else inside. Some new vinyl would really clean things up in here or you could stick with the budget Serape look.
Who cares what’s inside when you have one of these under the hood? That’s Ford’s famous 390 FE big block. I’m guessing it has the more efficient two-barrel carb setup on top, but I bet a new four-barrel and intake could really liven things up! It shouldn’t be hard to squeeze 300 horses out of that thing without much effort
Dog dish hubcaps complete our muscle wagon motive. As with sleepers of old, the only giveaway that there might be something going on here is the 390 badge on the fender. This thing isn’t perfect, but I can see a lot of potential here. Heck, if it were closer, I’d be tempted myself. How about you?
