As the owner of this 1961 Rambler Cross Country for sale on Hemmings.com points out, the compact wagon never fails to draw attention, perhaps because of its crisp lines or perhaps because of its blue and white livery.

The seller of this 1956 Ford Country Sedan station wagon, for sale on Hemmings.com, makes absolutely no claims of originality. In fact, if our reference materials are accurate, the 312-cu.in.

Wagons had been slowly picking up momentum since their inception, and 1937 marked the first year Ford devoted over 1-percent of its production to the station wagon body.

Although Mercedes-Benz’s CLS Shooting Brake was launched with great fanfare back in 2012, senior management in Stuttgart have reportedly quashed plans for a successor.
