The Jet Age Station Wagon class at the 2012 Concours of America included a matched set of 1959 FoMoCo wagons, the Ford Country Squire we just featured in the last post and this ’59 Mercury Colony Park. There’s an obvious family resemblance, though the Mercury has a bit more chrome trim. The “simulated wood”, however, is just as nice as on the Ford. This wagon belongs to Richard Saute of Pacoima, California. Richard was kind enough to pass along a link to a build history of the frame off restoration, which you can see here.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
