Falcon, Nova, Valiant; None of them impress me. The more I think about it my thoughts would be this ; if it was 1965 and I had to find a wagon in this class I'd probably go with the Rambler American.
Really nice colours in the first shot. Nice to see after a long drab winter. The big heart doesn't hurt of course.Nice how the rear end projects beyond the back glass area. Made me want go look at pictures of other valiants from that year. I like the look of the sedan/2dr better, just because of those vertical tail lights. Still -- a great find.
Love the pie crust rear tires, they go with the Hurst stickers in the window. Wonder if there is a hopped up slant 6 under the hood to make the old grocery getter really scoot.
The Chevy II/Nova might have looked better, but the brakes and handling are awful. Mid 60's Falcons are cool, but common.This is rad! Slant 6 goodness. The wagon would make a perfect 4-door Ute...
Factory V-8. I'd daily drive this in a heartbeat. Even a big, cardboard heatbeat.One year older and it would have had the beloved pushbutton tranny. Ah well nothing is perfect.
the stickers tell me an enthusiast owns it. i wonder if he thinks his car is badass on the same level that i do. happy to see it so clean and stock.i've wanted one of these for a long time.if i lived on that street, i'd be bugged at that big red heart, but man, photo #1 is just like giving the middle finger to all the grumpy haters.i hope it isn't memorializing someone who died when he crashed into that tree.
Really rare find, so few 60's wagons left of any ilk! Most of em used up.
