Long before today's minivans and SUV's, there was the Station Wagon. No suburban household was complete without this essential vehicle capable of transporting the entire family, luggage, and the dog on the annual road trip. This car is a version of the most popular body type - the nine passenger wagon with two forward facing seats and a single rear facing bench seat.
Many of us of a certain age (and you know who you are) have fond memories of winning the battle over your siblings to claim the rear seat. This was a world unto its own - your parents were half a block away in the front seat, you could pretend that you didn't hear them when they told you to be quiet, your bratty little sisters and brothers were in the middle seat, and you were the king of the road. It was an odd perspective on the world when you couldn't see where you were going, only where you had been. Your greatest entertainment was waving and making faces at the people in the car behind you, and they usually waved back.
These giant vehicles are making a comeback, and this one-owner, 1970 Plymouth Custom Suburban Wagon has all the features of the era: roll up windows, vinyl seats, manual locks, two-way rear door with power window, luggage rack, and even an underdash cassette player and separate FM radio.
Power is supplied by the Commando 383 V-8 with 290 horsepower, and is delivered through a three speed Torque Flite automatic transmission. It boasts a combined fuel mileage of 13 miles per gallon.
This car is truly a well-preserved example of a nearly extinct symbol of a time gone by. What a great way to share your childhood memories with your children or grandchildren. Even better, let someone else drive as you sit in the rear seat and make faces at the people in the car behind you. Please call Suzanne 610-444-2222 at Bavarian Motorsport www.bavarianmotorsport.com
