1972 Ford Country Squire 4×4 Wagon – SOLD!

by | Oct 2021 | Classifinds, Wagon Wednesday

October 19, 2021 Update – We confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” changed their Craiglist ad to feature another car to save five bucks, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

October 9, 2021 Update – After a three-month pause following the expiration of their last California-Craigslist-based post, oddly enough we came across a new listing for this 4×4 Ford LTD wagon on the Chicago area page.  Based on the use of the same pictures and description combined with the car still being located in California, the same seller is still trying to sell this unique ride. This time, however, the seller elected to raise his asking price from $15,500 to $17,999. Raising your asking price never seems to be a good strategy, so we’ll keep an eye on how this goes.

August 17, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” unless we come across something similar.

July 11, 2021 Update – We just spotted an updated listing for this unusual Country Squire restomod.  The pictures, description, and asking price all remain the same.

If you ever wanted to merge a vintage full-size station wagon on a dualie truck chassis, the work has already been done if you decide to buy this 1972 Ford “Super Wagon” originally listed in July 2021 on Cragslist in San Luis Obispo, California. An amalgam of Malaise-Era Ford Country Squire set atop a mid-1960s F250 Dually Camper Special Truck Frame appears to be a quality built example offered for a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this-price of $15,500. To put things in perspective, comparing that asking price against the values for a stock example in the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $11,900 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $19,000.

The seller provides a great summary of their unique ride that we really can’t say anything other than we would love to have this Country Squire added to our fantasy garage.

Here’s the seller’s description:
