It has been a very long time since I’ve had the pleasure to bring you a Wagon Wednesday posting, and here is one for the record books. This is a 1959 Ford Country Squire that now rides on top of a Ford 4X4 chassis of some sort. It takes the 50s or 60s Suburban Family Style, and combines the in your face outrageousness of a Monster 4X4 into one vehicle. Is it a vehicle that you would want to own?
According to the listing:

Yes, the guy who wrote the ad likes to use all caps, as if he’s shouting at you, but can you blame him? This thing is AWESOME… Well, it has the potential to be awesome. Top bid so far with less that a day and 1/2 to go is $3,383, with an unmet reserve. The Buy-it-Now price tag is $19,500, to which I say “CRACKPIPE”. However. I am wondering what you guys think about this Redneck Country Squire. See the listing here: [sc:ebay itemid=”290946810710″ linktext=”1959 Ford Country Squire 4X4″ ]
