5k: Woodie Wagon: 1965 Ford Galaxie Country Squire
The third generation Ford Galaxie (1965-1968) was a full-sized sedan/wagon that occupied the a higher bracket of Ford badged full-size vehicles (just below the LTD.) The Galaxie was visually recognizable by its stacked headlights (a design element that was cascaded down to smaller Fords) and it sold well during its lifespan. The wagon was badged as the Country Squire when it was covered in fake wood, and this next example looks like a good bang for the buck. Find this 1965 Ford Galaxie Country Squire Wagon offered here on eBay currently bidding for $7,200 with 1 day to go, located in Coventry, CT.
The lawn and leaves on the trees indicates that these pictures are few months old, but it looks like a decent runner in the pictures. The seller doesn't disclose how long he/she has owned the car, but indicates that the beast is rust free and only needs minor reconditioning (needs a headliner).
Power comes from a 302 cubic inch V8, which wouldn't have been available until 1968, so this car has been given a new engine at some point in time. Power in the Windsor V8 would have been around 220 horsepower when new, but all kinds of aftermarket hot rod parts can coax out more power.
