  1. I remember all the station wagon muscle car’s from the 60s cause they raced em and hauled the family around in em lol..I always liked station wagons and they mostly had big block 4speed transmissions and they ran a pretty good E/T in em as well..I’ve had my eyes on a 66 Galaxie station wagon with a 428 4speed and a 65 Dodge Coronet 440 with the big 318 4speed in it and they’re both completely original but I don’t think their 4sale but it doesn’t hurt to ask every now and then lol..The 66 Ford has fake wood grain down both sides and it reminds me of a sleeper until ya notice the badges on the front rear part of the fenders cause it’s got 428 on em. It’s a nice tan with tan interior vehicle..

  2. My 1st car was a 1961 Dodge Dart Pioneer station wagon. It had a 410 hp 413 ci and a 3 speed manual. My father bought it new in Grand Jct, CO. He was told it’d been ordered by a Colorado sheriffs department. I won a lot of stoplight derbies against muscle cars.

  3. In 1965 my father was returning with the family from a 3 year tour in Germany courtesy of the US Army. He ordered a new car which was waiting for us at a dealership in NJ when we pulled into port in NYC. It was a black 1965 Olds Vista Cruiser with red interior. 330 cubic inch V8 and – yeah, he did it – a 4 speed manual transmission. Over the years it acquired bigger sway bars, bigger chromed/reversed wheels and tires, Thrush mufflers and a Hurst shifter – complete with decal “Shift as Hard as You Like – But Don’t Break Your Arm”. What a car to learn to drive on!!! My buddies all called it the Dragin’ Wagon.

    1. Those are the best cars GM made from a car guy standpoint. They were beasts within a slippery skin that beheld generations worth of memories in a decade that car guys nowadays are still trying to achieve

    2. Sentimentally, I couldn’t agree more. As a terminally-infected car guy almost 70 years old, all the vehicles from that era are pretty much “trucks” by today’s standards. But it sure was a lot of fun at the time! My first car was a ’55 Chevy – and it was truckish compared to dad’s wagon.

    3. @@michaelyount3176 Your dad seems like he must’ve been a pretty cool guy. You’re lucky,in that respect.

  4. We had a brand new ’72 Buick Estate Wagon which I believe was the 455ci & Dad drove it until you could practically see through it from the rust. Some guys bought it for the motor in 80’s

  5. Factory, or not, they are all incredible. A soccer mom could blow your doors off bringing the kids home from school. I like the imposing look/stance of the CTS-V……

  6. In 1967 I went to an NHRA National event that featured 2 car haulers full of white with blue trim Factory FORD race cars, including a full size 1967 station wagon with slicks, a 4 speed and a 427 dual quad under the hood… Despite sitting right beside a 427 SOHC Mustang sportback, most people in the pits waere jazzed by that wicked wagon. I recall seeing that wagon, the SOHC Mustang and a couple of other cars from that very day go across the auction block at a Barrett Jackson., for big bucks. I remember that day also for having been able to sit in a Top Fuel Dragster cockpit. Great fun at age 15!

  7. My father bought a new 1970 Plymouth Sport Suburban wagon, fully loaded with a 383 Magnum under the hood, the new style 2 way rear wagon door with disappearing glass and could open as a normal wagon or could be opened like a regular door, it was the talk of the block.

  8. Very cool. I love wagons. There was also a very cool Chevy II wagon. Let’s not forget the Nomad (though not muscle from factory). Love the CTS-V. Guy in town (fairly small mid south city) who has one w/ 6 Spd. manual.. Super rare.

    1. You might notice he actually isn’t just telling about factory cars but mixes it all together. It’s quite confusing really as he says things like “This one wasn’t actually produced in it’s day but was the idea of a coup,e of guys that wanted to make it. They added the SS badges and put it the 445Ci engine and 4 speed manual. It was also available with an automatic transmission and a spoiler”. So it’s all mushed together. Weird.

    2. True. I suppose the modded cars shown weren’t really ‘restomods’ (modern running gear w/ old body) but imagined factory muscle cars using the original running gear. I’m not really a vintage guy, but if I had money to burn, would be cool to have a tricked out Nomad. In Surf Green w/ antique white roof to match my vintage Fender Strat. I’m more into the modern stuff like the CTS-V or the Audi Avant or stuff from AMG though I have to make do w/ my Golf Sportwagon turned into a sleeper GTI. @@friguy4444

  9. My Neighbor had a ’69 Vista Cruiser with the 455, when Grandma visted from Chicago, she would drive us to the beach, like a maniac, and looking out the back window, hearing that quadrajet moan at every stop sign, good times.

  10. A friend of mine had one of the rarest 1963 Nova wagons built. He was a ex GM executive and got permission the have it built with a 327 4 speed instead of the standard 283 powerglide.

  11. The Vista Cruiser didn’t exactly need the Hurst upgrade. The stock versions were just as badass as the one featured, even though the featured one isn’t genuine. They were monsters, straight from the factory!

  12. I loved my 2006 Magnum R/T it got wide eyes from the japanese import crowd when I started leaving them in the rearview at 100mph and still pulling like a draft horse.
