OG Vinyl: 1971 Ford LTD Country Squire


Keeping with the luscious woodgrain theme here on Daddy Types, check out this total stunner of a station wagon, a 1971 Ford LTD Country Squire with a mere 60,000 miles. It's being sold by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, and it was advertised on Hemmings, where it was the Find of the Day, thereby prompting dozens of middle-aged men to start reminiscing about the Golden Age of Station Wagons.


Anyway, with two sidefacing rear benches instead of one single rear-facing seat, Ford claimed this wagon could seat 10 with all the ease, comfort, and state-of-the-art safety (steel, plus lap belt) 1971 had to offer.

The real reason you would buy this, though, is not for the acres of green vinyl upholstery; it's for the woodgrain spoiler.

They really do not make them like they used to.

Plus CB, installed!
And those seats in the trunk have staggered length bottom cushions to fit kids with different length thighs.

OH RIGHT, I forgot the CB.
