Want a lifetime project, restore a rotten Lincoln or Cadillac.
Photo #4: I’m trying to match it up to profile of any known Ford wagon—maybe 1960? Is the roof gone?
Cool to see these photos; obviously not the midwest (among other locales)!
Based on the placement of the “Country Sedan” badging, its a 1957. The Country Sedan was a step below the wood paneled Country Squire.
I suspect it is a 1955 Ford station wagon. The 1957 had medium-size tail fins, which do not show here. I am sure a 1955 or perhaps 1956 model, based on the fender shape.
It’s a 1957. The Country Sedan script was at the tail end of the car in ‘57, as in the picture above. For 1955 and ‘56 it was on the front fender.
Geese. If that’s how they’re gonna be kept, just let them die with some dignity.
I want the Dauphine.
Cringe 😬 seeing the Continental.
Ha, you’re not going to get your moss covered hands on me!
Wow, never knew this place existed and it is in my stomping grounds. In fact it isn’t that far away from where I bought my Scout II Traveltop.
I think it’s time for a “Don Kincl” coffee table book or art gallery exhibit. I like the way his photos almost always show that automobiles, just like us humans are in a constant battle to fight off death and disintegration. His photos capture textures as well as any photographer I can think of today. Very well done as usual.
I see a lot of autos. Salvage…? Not so much. Nevertheless, I also see a lot of terrific D. Kincl photography!

Memories too. If someone drags out that Dauphine and power washes it, it would probably be snapped up by a collector in Europe. That’s where mine went. I drove it to Flying Dutchman – I think in Emeryville – and off it went .
Just try to find 4 that match in that pile o’ hubcaps!
It is funny how after almost 45 years, every time I look at a big pile of hubcaps I still instinctively scan for one for a 67 Ford Galaxie. And yup, there it is, right up front.
The photography is beautiful!
I’m surprised there’s enough left of that Dauphine to recognize!
