The 1960's Ford Station Wagons like it's main competition Chevrolet, got longer, wider and lower as the decade flew by. Headlights were horizontal or vertical. Tail lights were round or square.

The styling from year to year did not change much, it was a bland decade for designers. The great designers of the past were now retired or gone and the newer generation never had the talent, sorry to say.

The "Chariots" got heavier and larger because gas was cheap but all that will change going into the 1970's.

I fell in love when I saw that 1960 here. I have never understood why 1960 Fords are not more popular than they are. I will take the 1960 Ford "Woody" hands down. Mario, thanks for the new topic, interesting as usual. Cheers.

I agree George the 1960 to me is the best looking Ford wagon of the decade. Maybe because it has some of the charm left over from the fifties before the radical sixties started. Cheers!

My high school buddies and I used to go crow hunting and our one friend's dad had a 1962 like the one in the photo. We would get out of school and go looking for the crows flyways and follow them to where they roosted and then, well...it rained crows down on top of us along with a lot of bird poop.

We filled the back of the station wagon's floor with our quarry and took it to the President of the Gun Club at our school and put them in his yard after dark mind you in a nice assembled group.

Phone calls were made the next day to our homes to come pick up the dead crows and donate them to the local zoo for food.

I thought eating crow was different but what did I know? Then and now!!

Another interesting story from your past Rob! I'll be thinking about crows all day today and seeing them rain down on me. Sort of the like the Birds movie.

I think the GM designer that put the fins on the 59 and 60 Impala, Bel Air and Biscayne moonlighted with Ford on the fins of the 1960 wagon......

You're right again with that observation. Funny how the 60 Ford fin resembles the Chevy's fins of 59 and 60.

Coincidence? Or espionage? And the 60 Ford fin was unique to that year never to be seen again!

Speaking of coincidence or espionage. Interesting how the tail lights on the 1960 Ford, kind of look like the tail lights on the 1957 Chevrolet. Maybe this is one of the reasons I have always liked the 1960 Ford. Cheers.

Wow great observation George! You're right the 60 Ford tail lights look very similar to the 57 Chevy's!

I wonder how many other "coincidences" exist. Good topic for discussion. Cheers!
