Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons

It seems that sales of the two-door station wagons started falling in the early sixties and they were soon dropped from the line. I believe that 1963 was the last year of the two-door Mercury Comet like this one. What two-door wagons do Ford Barners have?

My Dad came home with a 56 RanchWagon. My brother and I wore him out getting in and out of the car. He said when he gets rid of this one he would never buy another 2 door car. Harley

Well, I have a '55 Courier sedan delivery wagon, but they did offer 2-door passenger wagons around that time also.

This picture of a 1957 Mercury Commuter Two-Door Hardtop Station Wagon was taken on the Gold Coast during the sixties by a friend of mine. It had been converted to Right Hand Drive. Because the owner resided near the coast, the salt in the air made its destructive way and it suffered by much rust and was eventually sold. Unfortunately, the new buyer thought that it was too big a task to restore so cut it up and dumped it. This is probably the only 1957 Mercury Commuter that made it's way to Australia. It is just a pity that it no longer exists.

Dave, Thanks for posting this picture of your 1955 Ford Courier. It may not be a wagon, but is still very nice, so here is an enlarged picture for Barners to enjoy.

Here's my new project I just started. 1960 Ford Courier. Going to lower it all around and it will have a 302/C4 to move it down the road.

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons
 

There is an Edsel guy who took a 1960 Ford 2-door wagon and made it into a "What If" 1960 Edsel 2- door wagon.

It looks factory and was done to incredable standards. I"ll see if I can find a picture of it online somewhere.

Learn something new everyday. I always thought all Couriers had no side windows behind the drivers door. Did they make them both ways in 1960 ? With and without windows ?

Here is a copy of an Advertisement for the 1960 Ford Courier. You can see that for this year, they included windows.

Here is a larger picture of Lowriders 1960 Ford Courier. All 1960 Ford Couriers had side windows like this one. This was the last year for the full size Ford Courier. For 1961, this body style was transferred to the compact Ford Falcon.

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons
 

I have to comment again on the beauty of that wagon! That rear glass in association with the curve of the roof line, well a scrubby with "similar" "custome" rear glass and roof won a bunch of awards for "out of the box" thinking and exicution. And here Ford 45 or so years earlier designed a roof line to rival the most "extreme" customs of today!! JMHO

That is a great looking Wagon. He did a good job converting a 1960 Ford into this 1960 Edsel.

My Dad bought a new Pinto Cruising wagon, think it was a 78. Must have been close to the last 2 door wagons. All the Pintos were 2 doors.

Re: Two-Door Ford and Mercury Wagons
 

I agree on the quality of the conversion. Very nice indeed. But even he didn't change that roof line. I am a wagon fan though I have only owned one. A 60 Merc 9 passenger, (back seat faced rear-ward) I was 17 and cannot recall the model. Had a 430 Lincoln engine. Wasn't to quick out o th hole, but boy howdy she'd fly on the interstate!

Kustom Komet from Arizona sent me these pictures of his 1960 Mercury Comet Two-Door Station Wagon. It has 289/C4, 8 inch '63 Falcon rear end, '65 V8 steering, Granada disc brakes.
