This magnificent example of a Country Sedan Station Wagon was reported to the current owner as having been purchased originally by Murry Wilson. Although no documentation has been found to prove the story, it is alleged that Murry, the father and manager of The Beach Boys, bought this Ford new in Arizona and that it may have appeared in an early Beach Boys promotional film. The car was placed into a museum in California where it spent the next 25 years. From California, it went to another museum in Pennsylvania where it remained until 2017. This classic wagon has original paint, stainless and chrome. A rare 8 passenger model that almost has to be the very best one in existence!
