Vintage Snapshots: 1960 Chevrolet Parkwood Wagon, Traveling Across The US

Here’s one of those “telling a story through images” posts, thanks to these photos showcasing a 1960 Parkwood wagon traveling across the US. It’s a bit hard to tell in the shots, but I believe it’s a California vehicle. If so, it’s a family doing quite a journey.

At some point, the vehicle gets a cracked windshield, noticeable in some shots. The wagon’s model is also quite visible in one image; it’s a Parkwood. Along the Kingswood, these were Chevy’s Bel Air-trimmed wagons. In Parkwood version, that meant 6 passenger seating —more than enough for this family, who seemed to have enjoyed a memorable trip.

While we don’t have a 1960 Parkwood post, we have one of a similar vintage Nomad; Chevrolet’s fanciest wagon line.

Enough words. Let’s move on with the images.
