Vintage Carrier: 1955 Ford Wagons On The Way

The ’50s had brought the modern station wagon to the market, and Ford wasn’t going to miss out on the action. And here, a ’53 Ford F-600 is bringing a bunch of ’55s, with one fake woody for variety. 1955 would be a good year for Ford wagons, with a total 209,459 units sold; beating Chevrolet by almost 50K on that market.

Talking about Dearborn, my Cohort browsing suggests old Ford wagons exist in larger numbers than Chevys. Especially in Di-Noc guise. Higher survival rates? Or good photo material for curbsiders?
