I love station wagons, and I love clean, old, original cars. So I was knocked out to find this machine here in The Netherlands. A just-like-new original 1968 Ford Country Squire with 14k miles on it. Engine is the Ford 390. This car looks untouched. Showroom new. A black-plate California car that has spent its life in a garage. The dealers who imported it to Holland changed hoses, did brakes, and replaced fluids. New battery. Everything else is original. The interior is like new. Investment-grade vinyl. The original faux-woodgrain is in perfect condition. This wagon deserves a trip via container back to the US--with that size, and that engine, it really isn't a getting-around-Holland kind of car.
