From real wood panels in the late 40s and early 50s, faux wood panels made a return to form during the mid-1960s, which lasted well into the 1980s. This six-seat (code 71E) Country Squire is one such example and it has the optional Z-code 390 V-8 to really haul! Made in Ford's Los Angeles, California (VIN code J) assembly plant on August 28, 1964, (date code 28H) this example was sold in the same region where it was built, Los Angeles (DSO 71). Dressed in Raven Black (code A) with a recent quality repaint, the car's paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The faux wood hand painted panels offer good contrast and the car's chrome and trim have been redone as well. The body is straight. The engine bay is extremely tidy and the rear cargo area is extremely clean. The battery appears new and the chrome bumpers shine brightly. This wagon rides on all-season whitewall tires, size 215/75R15 at every corner. The tires are mounted on steel wheels topped with new wheel covers. The tires are in good condition. Under the hood is Ford's 390 CID FE V-8 engine with a two-barrel carburetor (VIN code Z) with an upgraded Petronix ignition and new dual exhausts. This motor is backed by a Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission (code 4) with a 3.00:1 rear end (code 1). Driver convenience features include power steering, new power brakes, an electric rear window and many new steering and suspension parts. Inside, the wagon sports an all-new correct red vinyl interior (code 65). The front and rear bench seats are in very good order, the matching carpet is in similar order, with a neutral headliner. There's an aftermarket three-spoke wood rimblow steering wheel. The instrument panel and door panels are in excellent order. A column-mounted shifter and a factory AM radio complete the interior but the rear tailgate lock is inoperable. The rear-wheel drive 1965 Ford chassis used by the sixth-generation Country Squire retained the 119-inch wheelbase of the previous generation. For higher strength and rigidity, the frame rails became fully boxed; the perimeter frame configuration was retained. While again using a double-wishbone, ball-jointed A-arm configuration for the front suspension, the front track width was widened to improve handling. The rear leaf springs were discontinued, replaced with a three-link coil-sprung solid rear axle. For the sixth generation, the Country Squire again shared its doors with four-door Ford sedans. While the roofline of the Country Squire was shared with the Mercury Colony Park, the two model lines shared different bodywork below the window lines (including front fascias and rear quarter panels). In a major styling change, full-size Ford's adopted vertically stacked headlamps, raising the hoodline and enlarging the grille. Nineteen sixty-five also marked the first year for two-way key vehicle access across the Ford line. The introduction of two keys was for valet parking, where the rounded head key would only open the trunk or locked glove compartment, while the squared head key would only unlock the doors and the ignition. For the 1965 model year, the full-size Ford model line underwent a complete redesign with an all-new chassis. Alongside the introduction of the Ford LTD, the Country Squire was a counterpart of the Galaxie 500 model line alongside the non-woodgrain Country Sedan (alongside the standard Galaxie). Competition to this Ford in 1965 included Chevrolet's Impala wagon, Mercury's Colony Park wagon, Plymouth's Fury III wagon and Rambler's Ambassador wagon. If classic wagons are your bag, then you must stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check over this great factory black Country Squire from the mid-1960s, when vertical headlights were still the rage.
