Description: A fine automobile for sale at eBay online auction!

Long before the advent of the SUV, there was the American station wagon. Starting with the "Woodies" of the 1940s, millions of full-size wagons did double duty as convenient haulers of people and cargo, all through the 1960s and into the 1970s, when consumers began to turn away from these practical land yachts.

The immaculate survivor presented here was sold new in 1964, when the muscle car era was in full swing. Big Detroit iron was battling it out on drag strips and NasCar's Superspeedways. And what better means to tow or push a race car than a big-block wagon! From the starting line at Irwindale to the infield at Daytona, almost every contemporary photograph contains one or more Wagons in the background, ready for their assigned duty! A station wagon was cool. and Mom and Pop still could use it to pick up the kids from school or to go fishing.

On April 11, 1964, Harris Ford in Lynwood, WA delivered this Country Sedan to its first owner, Mr. Neilsen, a local dentist. About 18 months later, the car was traded in at the dealership for a new model. It was subsequently acquired by Mr. Russ Anderson from Everett, WA, a lifelong Ford mechanic who religiously maintained it for the next 38 years.

Russ bought and sold many Fords over the decades, but he held on to his pride and joy -- which he fondly called "The best car ever made" -- until he quit driving in 2003, at the ripe old age of 85. Since then, the big wagon has enjoyed semi-retirement in Ojai, Calif. cherished by its current, third caretaker. Today, 47 years after it was first driven on the highway, the trusty Ford's odometer shows just 81,657 actual miles.

Ahh, Ford's practical and informative warranty plate, riveted to the driver's door! It tells us that VIN * 4P72Z116705 * was built on October 18, 1963 at the Twin Cities plant, and was factory-equipped with the "Z" code 390 V-8, Cruise-o-Matic transmission, and a 3.00:1 rear axle.

Toothbrush clean engine compartment houses the original 390 "big block," delivering 300 lively ponies and gobs of torque, 427 ft.lbs. @ 4,600rpm, to be exact.
