f this 1956 Chrysler Windsor station wagon doesn’t talk to you, well, move on. But if you are digging this awesome ’50s hauler, complete with a 331 V8 and pushbutton transmission, then stick around because vintage wagons don’t get much cooler. The color is Desert Rose, and while it’s technically ’50s pink, it works extremely well here. Yeah, you’ve got to be secure in your masculinity to drive a pink station wagon, but if you’re cruising in something from the 1950s, pastel is where it’s at. The car was repainted at some point, but the paint is showing some age, so it has a very age-appropriate patina that could almost pass for original. For that reason alone, we love it. You’ll note that there’s no evidence of botched bodywork, all four doors and the tailgate fit quite nicely, and for a product of the 1950s, fit and finish are quite good. There’s plenty of chrome, but the Windsor is a lot more stylish than the slab-sided Chevys and primitive Fords, with a very modern look that has a cool little kick-up in the rear doors so it resembles the Windsor coupes and sedans. Nice, right? The chrome and stainless trim is in good condition overall and it’s complete, which is important on something this rare. Oh, yeah, it’s got fins, too, which are cool chrome-tipped pieces that frame a set of very cool taillights. There’s just no angle from which this car doesn’t look great.
