1960 Chevy Station Wagon

I am just crazy about this station wagon that was part of the Rod & Custom Car Show in Stuhr Museum’s Railroad Town:

It is a 1960 Chevrolet, and one contemporary ad referred to it as “Man’s best four-wheeled friend.” I don’t know about that, but I could haul all three of my actual “man’s best friends” with room to spare. Seriously, this wagon has 10 feet of space from the back of the front seat to the tailgate, a whopping 90 square feet!

Engine choices included the 235 6-cylinder, 283 V-8 or a 348 V-8 with up to 350hp.

The ’60 wagon was available in five models, a Brookwood available in either two or four doors, a 4-door Parkwood, a 9-passenger Kingswood and a Nomad:

For 1960, Chevy abandoned the “cat’s-eye” tail light used in ’59 in favor of round ones. It looks like this wagon is sporting Caddy tail lights. Nice touch!
