From the seller:

1972 Ford Country Squire STATION WAGON

Outstanding condition. Fully remarkable. Unrestored treasure.

Beautiful as it looks, this old wagon runs and drives even nicer. Only 105,100 original miles. A real time capsule.

Over $3,000 worth of semi-recent (2 years ago, but under 200 miles since) maintenance work. Includes Air Conditioning recharge, battery, and 4 new tires. Everything was professionally gone through to ensure reliability.

You can fully enjoy this car immediately. Get in, turn the key, dial down the nice cold A/C, and get ready for smiles and waves everywhere. 100% no excuses, all pleasure. Everything about this car functions as should, or better.

This thing is just pure awesome and 70’s grooviness. There’s a custom made roll-up bed for the rear, covered in what else … Brown velour ! For the roof, a zip-up vinyl luggage carrier with straps. For placing outside the car during picnics, there’s a carpeted mat. This car is just the best in every way. Take a look at that vintage plastic accessory cupholder and period correct floor mat. There’s two front seat ashtrays, and a factory under-dash Kleenex box holder. Absolutely golden.

It’s clear to see how this car has been taken care of. The interior is as brand new; absolutely spotless. The exterior has had some minor touch-ups for preservation. Please see in the pictures, there was some touch-up’s to the woodgrain where it had dried/cracked. It’s faded differently in different sections but is far more uniform with a good coat of wax. The pictures really seemed to accentuate but it’s far less obvious in person. There is one small (maybe 2 by 2 inch) spot of rust behind the driver’s side wheel opening, at the very bottom corner. It hasn’t even broken the paint, but I can see it’s there. Undercarriage is outstanding. This is a SOLID-SOLID vehicle. It originally hails from Canada’s only desert region (yes, hard to believe, but we actually technically have one). This is a fabulous collector car, in fantastic condition. Obviously cared-for originals like this are far in-between.

Because of it’s age and domestic build,
This Country Squire Wagon is free of any
import/export restrictions,
and can travel perfectly freely.
It is domestic build, and considered antique status.

If you’d like to know what special papers it needs for the US… Answer is NONE.

Once again, it can travel as freely as state to state. Titles are perfectly transferable.

We have built some very decent feedback. Before we downsized a while back, we had a modest collection of old cars that we were quite enthusiastic about. We’ve become good friends with most of our buyer’s. Not too long ago, we received a letter from the gentleman that bought our ’70 GSX (tribute). He just won Best Musclecar in Show.

Anyhow, and in any regard, my wife Sophia has gotten pretty good at arranging shipping. She’ll set everything up for you. You won’t almost have to lift a finger. Most states were in the 1,500 to 2,000 dollar price range. Furthermost destinations like Texas and Florida range about 2,500. I understand that it’s gone up recently so please budget for at least this much.

Vehicle must be paid for within 72 hours of end of auction, unless previous arrangements have been made.

The not-so-fine print…..
Sold as-is how-is where-is. No refunds, no returns, no exchanges.

Please kindly understand, I probably have missed some information. I’m not a salesman or professional. We’re getting rid of our last batch of vehicles we’ve collected and just don’t use. My long term love/hate relationship with cars has come to an end. If you have any questions… please write. I’m eager to help. Also if you’d like to speak over the phone, just let me know and we’ll arrange.

Thanks, kindest regards, and happy bidding.

I SHOULD MENTION : Along with the car, you’ll get a thick corresponding folder containing receipts, invoices, and paperwork; dating all the way back to 1972. Nothing is missing. There’s even a log-book. The original owner (until 8 years ago) was a military man and was pretty astute with things being done in a certain manner. I think this adds a nice bit of provenance to the car’s history, documents the care you can see it’s obviously been given, and adds value to it’s collectibility.
