Ford station wagon: Best ride on the range

Whether you’re riding herd on mountain goats or moseying down a gopher-holed cow trail, the “wild west” is suddenly tame … inside the new kind of Ford.

No wonder. You’re in the saddle of a new Inner Ford … the beefiest, most heavily insulated “inner car” in its field. A quieter, smoother riding “inner car,” cushioned by up to 20 live rubber body mounts. A smoother handling “inner car,” thanks to a new swept-back, ball-joint front suspension. In short, an “inner car” that incorporates so many ride advances …the rough roads feel like expressways.

All in all, you’ve got yourself the smoothest ride on the range. What’s more, you’ve got yourself a ride that’s designed to stay smooth. For the new kind of Ford is as rugged as a Brahma bull. It’s built to stay built. And power? A mighty round-up of it from five new Silver Anniversary V-8s.* Or if you prefer, choose Ford’s new Mileage Maker Six… the most powerful six in the industry.

Action-Test a Ford soon. Find out for yourself why the new kind of Ford is corralling such raves.

You want lots of load space, for instance. Ford Station Wagons give you space to spare for work or family travel. You want easy loading. Ford wagons make it possible for you to open the lift gate and tail gate with one hand. And you get the widest load space opening in the low price field, thanks to Ford’s wrap-around liftgate.
