Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

“Summer 1959”

Written on the back: “Summer 1959”. Since Fred or Gary or Carl or whatever his name happens to be, is standing right in front of where I’d more easily be able to identify his car — and the tail lights are cropped out — and I can’t see the grille, I had a bit of a time nailing this one. But I did. Mr. and Mrs “Swimmer” own themselves one really fine 1957 Ford Country Squire Wagon. Time to get the hose out and wash that thing down, you’re certainly dressed the part. Production of these back then was a mere 27,690 and cost a whopping $2,684. This vehicle positioned very highly on today’s collector car lists.

I’ve been corrected. The Country Squire pictured here is a 1958. Thanks for keeping me honest, Jerry!
