I hate to be the guy who always says that some car needs a V8…but…I’m gonna be that guy today. This next wagon needs a V8.

Consider a disc brake upgrade while you are at it, because the basic Country Sedan was not was well equipped as the Country Squire, but it didn’t come with the fake wood sides..which is a good thing in my opinion. Find this 1964 Ford Country Sedan offered for $11,000 in Concord, CA via craigslist.

The Radio Flyer Forester from the other day was questioned for its stance and aerodynamic efficiency, but personally I found the entire setup very cool from a novelty perspective. Suppose for a minute that the builder was into boats instead of kid’s wagons and classic muscle instead of turbo Scoobs…would he have built this 1963 […]
