New member from MA, looking for a 60's GM wagon. Looking forward to learning more about these vehicles. I'm in the process of selling my 92 GMC Typhoon to buy something larger for the family to cruise around in and go to car shows.
But are interested in a 1959 through 1964 X-frame wagon, or a 1965 through 1968 Estate Wagon. I don't have one but I did want to apologize for making you look at all of those pictures and say welcome to the Team!
That's for the welcome Big Dave. At this point I've narrowed my search down to GMC Suburban's from 67-72 and Impala, Bel Air, Biscayne Wagon's from 61-64. I would also consider a Buick, Olds or Pontiac wagon from 60-70 as well. I do like those herses though, I just don't see my wife getting in that thing.
It's not a Hearse it's a Cadillac station wagon (converted into a wagon from a four door limo usually by S&S). The limo was a D-body with twelve additional inches of rear seat leg room that the same four door B-body didn't have. It also had parts such as wheel hubs, brakes, and springs off of a pick-up cause those surf boards piled on top of the roof could get heavy along with all of your friends going for a ride.
I think the Suburban is God's gift to the family man. Best vehicle ever invented to transporting about anything. Rides like a car if you get the C-10, but it can ride like a lumber wagon with the K-30 suspension and towing package added (one ton 4x4 with 12,000 pound towing package that had only four wheels instead of six).
