Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: “My ’56 Chevy Wagon in 1974” – The Best Cheap Used Car At The Time?

John Lloyd posted this snapshot of his 1956 Chevy wagon as it was in 1974. It’s highly representative of so many Chevys from that time: good used cars easily made to go a bit faster.

Here’s his comment about it and what it had under the hood:

Had a ’66 327 engine, photo from 1974, Owosso, Michigan. Sold it that year and moved to Australia.

I can relate. In 1974, I’d have liked to have one just like it too. The wagon was a lot more practical than the others, for a perpetual vagabond like me, back in that time.
