Desert Lark: 1959 Studebaker 2-Door Wagon

1959 Studebaker Lark Wagon

So far this Wagon Wednesday is shaping up to be a great day! Just when we think it can’t get any better, it does. We have always been fans of the Studebaker Lark, so naturally this 2 door wagon version that OffShore64Guy sent us is going to make our day even better. With an asking price of just $800 we are seriously tempted to buy it for ourselves. If you have been on the lookout for a V8 powered 2 door wagon, but want something more unique than a Nomad, take a look at this 1959 Studebaker Lark Regal Wagon here on craigslist. Read more »

Stoplight Sleeper: 1962 Ford Country Wagon

1962 Ford Country Wagon

If the Checker Aerobus we featured earlier has too many doors for your tastes or is simply too long, you might be more interested in this 1962 Ford Country Wagon. Reader Richard B came across it here on craigslist and thought it would be a great candidate for Wagon Wednesday. This one looks rough on the outside, but has already had a lot of work done to it and is ready to drive. We aren’t sure about the rust… or patina as the seller calls it, but it could be a great project. Our thanks to Richard for the tip! Read more »

Extra-Long Wagon: 1967 Checker Aerobus

1967 Checker Aerobus

Now that the weather is about perfect, sitting in the office all day can be rather difficult. We have all been there, trapped at a desk counting down the hours until Friday. Since we first started Wagon Wednesday nearly a year and a half ago, our weeks have gotten considerably better. Rather than dragging ourselves through the week, now we look forward to Wednesday almost as much as the weekend. Opening emails on Wednesday morning has become a time of anticipation and excitement. We always get at least one submission that leaves us fascinated and possibly a bit perplexed. Well today the award of most intriguing wagon goes to this 1967 Checker Aerobus that Jim S sent in! He came across it here on eBay and thought we might enjoy this extra-long wagon. Read more »

1973 Chevelle SS 454 Wagon!

1973-chevelle-ss-454-wagon

Yep, you read that right. This Chevelle wagon is fitted with the 454! It only happened for one year (1973) so we doubt you are going to find another one around. It may not be as “unmolested” as the seller has attempted to project in their listing, but because of its rarity, we will let that slide. We really wanted the Yenko inspired wagon that just sold, but this might do. Find it here on eBay with no reserve! Read more »

The Big Small: 1978 AMC Pacer Wagon

1978 AMC Pacer

UPDATE: The seller just lowered the BIN to $1,500. Someone buy it before we do!

It might not be the best looking or performing car, but for some reason the AMC Pacer has slowly been growing on us. Perhaps it the quirky shape or the fact that they can usually be had on the cheap. While we would rather say it’s because we can pick them up cheap, we have to admit that it has more to do with that bulbous shape. Sure we love the smooth flowing lines of an Italian sports car or the low brutish shape of a British roadster, but those cars won’t grab the attention of every person on the sidewalk like a Pacer will. If you’ve been looking for a cheap driver that will get some looks, have a look at this 1978 Pacer here on eBay where it is being offered with a BIN of $1,800 and the option to make an offer. Thanks Jim S for this tip! Read more »

Mid-Sized Sleeper: AMC Rebel SST Wagon

1969 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

After posting an AMC Rambler with the interesting Twin Stick, we were a little surprised to stumble across another intriguing AMC product. This AMC Rebel doesn’t have any unusual technology, but being a station wagon that was optioned as an SST with a 290 cui V8 makes it a rather rare wagon. The original owner’s grandson started pulling it apart to repaint it, but thankfully lost interest before any damage was done to the original paint. The seller purchased it with the intent of putting it back together, but other projects have gotten in the way so they have decided to let someone else tackle it. Find it here on eBay with a BIN of $9,500. Read more »

Wagon Wednesday Shootout

Wagon Comparo

This Wagon Wednesday, we decided to try something a little different. We rounded up three great wagons that are currently for sale and while we could just feature each one separately, we thought it might be more interesting to do a comparison. It will be a little different than our normal comparisons though, as each wagons is a different take on the concept and each comes from a different time periods and country. Let’s start this comparison by introducing our competitors. First up, we have a 1963 Ford Falcon Deluxe 78 B Wagon, which is being offered here on eBay without a reserve. The next is a 1970 Saab 95 Station Wagon with room to seat 7 and can be found here on eBay. Last, but not least we have a 1976 Jensen Healey GT that was just pulled from a garage and is now also listed here on eBay. Read more »

Fishbowl on Wheels: 1975 AMC Pacer

1975 AMC Pacer

After our Know When to Say No post, we got a lot of interest in the AMC Pacer that Jesse had contemplated buying. While there were a lot of great comments about the Pacer, we thought it was time that we did a proper post about this unique automobile. Jim S was kind enough to tip us off to a pristine ’75 Pacer that is for sale on eBay, so we thought we would use it as our focal point. It’s a great example of the Flying Fishbowl and with a BIN of $3k, we think it’s a great deal for a driver. Read more »

Pre-war Woodie: 1930 Ford Model A Wagon

ford-woodie

It never ceases to amaze us how many old cars are still hiding in old garages and barns. Some days, as we explore our own town, we start to think that all the good finds are already gone. Then we hear stories like that of reader Patrick K. and it rekindles our hope. Patrick recently pulled a 1930 Ford Model A Station Wagon from a neighbor’s garage. For over 63 years the car was parked just 3 miles from his own home and he didn’t even know it was there. We will let Patrick share his recent find in his own words after the break. Read more »
