200 hp, 292 cu. in. overhead valve Y-block V-8 engine, Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, coil spring independent front suspension, semi-elliptic rear leaf springs with live axle, and hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115.5 in.
This Country Sedan comes with plenty of power, as it features the desirable 292 Thunderbird V-8 engine. Finished in Fiesta Red over black, this is a factory eight-passenger, three-row seating wagon that has been updated with soft maroon leather and black cloth upholstery. The headliner and restored padded dash appear as-new with an AM radio. The engine compartment has also been restored with chrome valve covers, original-type hoses, and painted block and manifolds. The body panels are very straight, and the panel fit is commendable throughout. The chrome and exterior stainless has been polished and few flaws are to be found, while the underside has been restored and painted. Other desirable features include an external visor, a roof rack with surfboard, and wire wheel covers on wide whitewall bias ply tires. Equipped with California black plates, this wagon is ready to hit the beach in style!
