This 1951 Ford Country Squire is a “woodie” station wagon acquired by the seller in 2018 after undergoing refurbishment and modification under previous ownership in 2012. Power comes from a retrofitted fuel-injected 4.8-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission, and additional work included a repaint in olive green, new maple and mahogany exterior trim, interior reupholstery in brown leather, and the installation of an air-ride suspension system, tubular lower control arms, yellow-painted steel wheels with wide whitewall tires, air conditioning, and a remote-controlled stereo system. This modified Country Squire is now offered with show awards, refurbishment photographs, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The 2012 work included media-blasting the body prior to a repaint in olive green, while curly mahogany panels with maple trim are said to have been sourced from Rick Mack Enterprises. Exterior features consist of a 1936 tailgate-mounted tire cover, a 1949 front grille, chrome bumpers, a body-color sun visor, and dual exhaust outlets.
Yellow-painted steel wheels wear bright hubcaps and are mounted with wide-whitewall tires all around. Power steering and power brakes are fitted, and the suspension is equipped with tubular lower control arms along with an air-ride system operated using cabin-mounted AccuAir controls.
The interior features seats upholstered in brown leather along with a matching headliner and door panels and tan square-weave carpeting. Additional details include a collapsible second-row seat, replacement sun visors, power windows controlled by factory-appearing window cranks, air conditioning, and a remote-control audio system.
A dual-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a pre-dated dashboard along with instruments including an electric clock and a 100-mph speedometer with a five-digit odometer showing 1,500 miles, approximately 600 of which have been added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown, and the seller reports the tachometer cable has come loose.
The replacement 4.8-liter V8 features fuel injection, six individual throttle bodies, an Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, and Offenhauser finned valve covers.
Power is routed to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. Additional underbody photographs are provided in the gallery below.
