I remember seeing a 1942 maroon Mercury station wagon at the Indy swap meet back in the mid to late 1980's. Wonder if that is the same car. I knew then it was a very rare car.

Re: Mind Your Own Business Coupes

In the sales brochures Ford calls the 1947 and 1948 3 passenger coupes as a "business coupe". To my knowledge Ford did not refer to the 1946 as a "business coupe.
