Continuing Wagon Wednesdays… I thought I would bring you five great wagons offered at Orlando Classic Cars in Orlando Florida. Just as I did during Two-Wheel Tuesday, I will just present the Wagons with only the information provided by the dealer, and there will be a poll at the end.
Our first wagon is a 1958 Edsel Bermuda Wagon which is reported as only one of 892 built. This has all the elements we love in vintage wagons: Two Tone Paint, Wood-Grain Sides, Wonky Styling, and a useful interior. According to the dealer:
Very rare model with interesting history. Reported to have been built for the president of the California Cattlemans Association and features a unique custom cow hide upholstery!
Mileage is undisclosed, but just look at this car…. Asking price is $35,000. See the listing here.
Here is a 1962 Rambler Cross Country Wagon, and if it looks familiar, then you may remember it from the Barrett Jackson Auctions. This is a one owner car, and according to the dealer:
Just in. California car. One family owned for over 40 years. Six cylinder, automatic, seats fold into bed. Excellent car. Very original. Call or email for info and detailed photos.
This is the last year for this body before the totally new 1963 models were introduced, and was also the last year that AMC used the push-button Automatic selector. The price is a little steep for a Rambler at $19,900. See the listing here.
Here is our next wagon, which is a 1964 Chevrolet Fire Chief Response Wagon, presented in the fictitious Mayberry Volunteer Fire Department livery. I don’t know what model this Chevy Wagon is, but I do know it at least has a V-8 and an Automatic. It also looks like it has vintage radio equipment, vintage emergency lighting, and other emergency type equipment. This is a flawless vehicle, and a bit pricey at $26,500. See the listing here.
Here is a 1969 Ford Country Squire that was featured in Motor Trend Clssics long with 1969 Chevrolet Kingswood Estate Wagon. According to the dealer:
Recently featured in Motor Trend magazine retrospect along with a Chevy Kingswood. This Country Squire is powered by a 429 4 bbl V8 factory rated @ 360 horsepower and features hide-a-way headlights, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes and power windows. Very nice condition.
The car shows 55,000 miles, and is actually reasonably priced at $17,900. See the listing here.
Our last wagon from Orlando is this 1983 Mercedes Benz 300 TD. However, there is a surprise under the hood that once housed a Three Litre Turbo Diesel…. It was replaced with a 383 Chevy Stroker! According to the dealer:
A professionally modified sport wagon. This pristine low mile turbo diesel Mercedes wagon has been fitted with a high performance Chevy V8 with an estimated 400 plus horsepower teamed to a 700R4 automatic with overdrive. The previous owner reports 1/4 mile times of 12.9 seconds and 20 mpg! Also features later model Mercedes chrome wheels and a Nardi steering wheel. Tastefully modified, excellent workmanship and a real sleeper! You’ll be impressed! The car handles and performs excellent. It’s docile around town until you put your foot into it! You’ll get a kick out of watching the jaws drop as cars disappear in your rear-view mirror!
Mileage is unknown. Is this car now worth more to you, or less? Asking price for this Frankenstein Monster is $19,900. See the listing here.
