Ranch Wagon (no 'wood' trim): 1952/60 2 door full sized Ford station wagon.
Country Sedan (no 'wood' trim): 1952/91 4 door full sized Ford station wagon.
Country Squire ('wood' trim): 1951 2 door "Woodie" station wagon (first use of the Squire name, the outer rails were wood, the inner panels were decals), 1952/91 4 door full sized Ford station wagon.
Polar Bear: My wife's secretary's husband passed away 2 years ago. He had a minty '66 Country Squire he bought brand new.
I never saw the car, wasn't interested, and AFAIK, his son acquired it after he passed away.
What's interesting is, this may be the same car since he lived in the same city this car is now for sale in (Los Alamitos CA).
Ranch Wagons w/4 doors: 1966/70. I shoulda looked before trusting memory.
I look at these old tubs today and wonder what madness God hath wrought to have enabled us to buy such oversized elephantine behemouths.
'Course, I'm no better than anyone else, cuz out in my garage...is a much newer example.
I'd love a Country Squire. Really reminds me of my childhood in the 60s when everyone with a family had a station wagon, including us. But ours was a brand new 1960 Plymouth Deluxe Station wagon with HUGE fins... It's worth a small fortune now if you could find it!
In the meantime,.... I'll stick to Ford trucks!
