Wow! Haven't seen one of these since
Jr. Highschool! These cars were built
very well and were powered by a 302
V-8 backed by either a C-4 or C-6 auto
tranny. This was also the first year for
standard front disc brakes. The last
one I saw was a Squire model with the
fake wood trim. As I recall, it looked
really sharp. Great find guys! What a
way to start my day!

Nice to finally see an old wagon WITHOUT the gaudy woodgrain! My uncle had one of these, but a year or two earlier, when they had the vertical headlights...and in the nicest shade of green- man! I loved that wagon! Like the Cap'n says, very well-built. (And yet they weren't bloated/over-blown or full of flab, like what would come a few years down the road- just good ol' American iron!)

Yeah Don, I owned the Ranchero version of this car (Raunchero was more like it) even
though the body was rusted and beat to hell, that little 302 never missed a beat. We
drove it two years before the truck inspector told me it wouldn't pass that next year's
go-round so we yanked the engine and tranny, pulling the rear axle at the wrecking
yard. That driveline found its way into a '71 Maverick with no alterations needed.
Just try doing that today! They don't build 'em like that anymore.

I saw this Jeep Comanche Pioneer today and it is a lot like the vehicles on this blog.
