Premuim X 1964 Ford Country Squire

Premuim X 1964 Ford Country Squire

As American families moved to the sprawl of the suburbs, a demand was created for a vehicle that could haul a sheet of plywood, carry the family, friends, or most of a Little League team when required, and look good while doing all of the above. The answer was the station wagon, and Ford fielded one of the better ones, placing its wood-paneled Country Squire at the top of the list. Premium X has just released this really fine resincast model of the car as it appeared in 1964, and its excellent finish (just a shade lighter than Ford’s Wimbledon White paint chips), realistic red  interior, and wealth of “in-scale” trim make it a real bargain at this price. The fake wood framing and panels are just the right color and even include the bolt heads; every piece of trim is here and in scale, including the “F O R D” letters at the hood’s upper lip. True, a couple of those were misaligned, but these are easily fixed. Relief-cast interior trim and handles are all neatly painted silver, and the accurate dash has a well-done speedometer decal. Lines are right from every angle, and dimensions are precisely 1:43 scale. Wild About Wheels provided this bargain-priced wagon for review. —Wayne Moyer
