Interestingly, out of the three Thunderbirds we’ve previously featured, two of them have been 1965 models like this one. For some reason they seem to be relatively common around here.
One of the last American station wagons built as minivans replaced wagons as typical family haulers. Gotta love the giant wood grain stickers on the sides.
I researched this out a little but still not sure on the year. It looks like the grille is probably off of a ’56, but the truck is definitely not a ’56 because it lacks the wrap around windshield. 1956 was the only year of the second generation to have this feature. Since the grille is not the original, I am not sure how to decipher the year.
Check out the cool spider web chain under the tail gate.
This 1961 Falcon station wagon shares a driveway with the 1960 Thunderbird posted previously.
According to information on Fordification.com, this truck was built in 1968. The only noticeable difference between the ’68 and ’69 is a slight variation in the grille– a ’69 grille has an indentation stamped in the center horizontal bar. This one looks like it’s still a good, solid working truck, though the original bed has been replaced by a generic flatbed.
