It should not be forgotten that fins are essential on estates.

But when it comes to sheer landyachtiness, it's difficult to beat a '60 Mercury Wagon.

It's even called "Colony Park", for those who still don't grasp what's going on.

No walnut cappings to the back of this one... a Standard Gazel estate from India, based on a local four-door interpretation of the Herald saloon.

The Queen has always looked to Vauxhall for a decent estate. These days she has an ex police dog handler unit Astra but in the old days if she was doing a run to the tip or picking up some extending ladders from B&Q she took the Cresta. She had this PA and later on a PC. This is why she is Queen.

queens-cars-vauxhall-cresta-estate.jpg

 

She had this PC well into the 1980s apparently.

 

This is the first time I have thought of the Queen with lust in my heart!

I know -= lets make an estate with the engine in the back - 
Daft idea that kind of worked if you didnt put much weight in it .|
The van version ( of which this was once )  had what must be the biggest difference in front and rear tyres in the history of motoring 
45psi rear 
18psi front
On crossplies = scary shit :)
Factory estate had opening side windows - well sliding ones - twas called the Husky

The 145 express, beloved of Swedish tradesmen and a service van version. Think the windows are just painted over, not panelled out. I believe the roof extension was steel on these rather than fibreglass so durable enough.

Rear engined estate cars like the Imp Husky.   Perfectly good idea.   Two boots, innit? 

 

 

There was a time when I really, really, wished my Dad would buy one of these.   Back then, by the way, Dads wore Tootal ties and bri-nylon shirts on the beach and smelt of Clan and Old Spice instead of being beanie hatted hipsters with beards like a Victorian cricket legend.    Lowering the car meant you had a puncture...

 

 

 

std_1972_vw_1600_variant_sv.jpg  

 

 

Had I grown up in Pennsylvania instead of the New Forest I would probably have wanted him to buy this.....

 

 

1962-Chevy-Corvair-Station-Wagon-1024x527.jpg  

 

 

Shame there was no Simca 1000 Chatelaine, NSU Prinz Kombi or Renault Dauphine Domaine to rival that Husky, though.
