Maybe I’m just an idiot (don’t answer that) but I LOVE pro street style station wagons, especially when they are as large and lovely as a 1960 Chevrolet Parkwood! No, I am not in love with 100% of this thing but 99.86% of it sure seems as right as rain to me. The basic story here is simple. Creatively styled, timeless cool, big block power, steel wheels, and a factory interior are all things that spin my crank. When we add in the green tinted glass, the stance that’s freaking awesome, and all that factory chrome, it can’t really get a whole lot better…at all.
I did mention that there was a few things that I wasn’t totally down with and the first is the green flame job. That can be fixed easily enough for sure. I love the green base color, though. It’s one of those sleepy, kind of unassuming colors that was probably so overly common in 1960 no one gave this car a second look. Today? Not a color you usually see and when you take the body matched wheels and combine it with that green I feel like it elevates the whole car.
One thing we do not see any photos of is the back half of the car. If I were going to buy this thing, I’d need lots of those to determine if it were worth the trip to go drive it. The way the rest of the car is turned out leads us to believe that the rear end and the (4-link?) are likely done in the proper fashion but some photos sure would be good.
Overall, this thing is a 10/10. I want to have my sons jump in the back and hit the road. Yeah, the big block needs some aluminum heads, and the transmission needs to be swapped for one with the clutch in front it it, but just look at this big fella! So fun.
