1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Concours Estate Wagon.

A woodgrain Chevelle? "Concours" indeed. Especially nice to see the original moss green paint bleached to white and replaced with actual live moss. The weathering pattern shows it's been sitting in this location for a while, but the general lack of pine needles suggests that someone has at least taken the effort to sweep it off recently.

The 68/69 Chevelle wagons & four doors have a certain type of look as to compared to the 70-72. Growing up I initially did not like these cars but nowadays I have noticed they (68/69 models) appear to be more cleaner looking all around. Actually same with the Buick's (Skylark &Custom).

Only thing better than a 68-72 A-body is a 68-72 A-body wagon, and a woody (kind of) no less!

Here in NY, all the neat old wagons have either rotted away or been "Resto-Modded" beyond recognition. Needless to say, I am jealous!

no patina tag?

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I just love cars like these. I find them inspiring.

Great shots, great notes.

I'd love to drive this thing.

Funny, there's a guy here at work who has TWO of the gigantic Lincoln Continentals, the ones with the suicide doors. He alternates them when he drives to work. And he seems to take particularly contrarian satisfaction and pleasure that each is covered with a green mossy patina.

Way better than any Chevelle that some Flair hair visor wearing boomer bought from Barrett Jackson.

Now there's a builder for you! I'd love to have this car parked at my place anytime.
Although I would repaint the car in its original color just to protect that precious sheet
metal from the salt air we have here in Florida. Next I'd add a set of 14X8 Rally rims
wrapped in correct period whitewalls. Don't worry Justin, after freshening the drivetrain,
I'd still use it as a daily driver!

Emblem pic needed! This looks like one of the most challenging shots we've had. Not many posts can rival this diversity of texture, color and lighting. Awesome chrome wing and rack.

I see it has Washington plates, where is this wagon?
