Mack Daddy: 1971 Ford Country Squire Station Wagon 42K Mile Survivor – SOLD!
July 2020 Update – we confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
June 17th Update: a check of the post of this ’71 Ford LTD Country Squire we first featured at the beginning of June shows its still listed on Craigslist for the same asking price of $20,000, so for now we’re assuming this highly optioned, low mileage time capsule remains available.
Call it the Sarah Jessica Parker effect as over the past several years, her famously daily-driving a mid-seventies safety bumper Ford Country Squire similar to the one her mother carted her around in has the values of Ford’s famous seventies wagon on the rise. A more attractive and more powerful alternative to Parker’s ride is this nicely optioned 42K original mile survivor we came across originally in early June 2020 on Craigslist in Washington, North Carolina with an asking price of $20,000. While the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool will have you thinking the asking price is $2,000 above the #1 “Concours” estimate, the NADA Guides Classic Car Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller’s ask falls about midway in the “Low”, “Average”, and “High” retail value range of $15,342, $26,455, and $42,035, respectively.
The only thing we can find fault with on this low mileage survivor is the faded carpet which no one would fault you for installing a fresh replacement. Good luck with the purchase!
