Station Wagon woody, 1977 Volare in Oregon. Not Mine.
I found on Salem Oregon Craigslist. I communicated with the seller. Appears to be a really nice car, possibly only 66,500 miles original, or maybe 166,500? He doesn't know. Super Six, with NON lock-up transmission. Looks like a "woody", but not sure if it has been painted over- ask him? $2000 looks fair. I can't bring it home.

Noooice..

Seems to Not be a 77 Maybe a 79... Judging by 79 Era parts bin on the AC comp. Clutch.
With aspen grille and the same interior as my 79 Aspen SE wagon... But of course mine is beige on the outside as well.


Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. Used to be a woody but they stripped the faed and peeling wood decals off and painted it.

Years ago my brother had a 78 or 79 Ford Fairmont wagon with the faded vinyl apppliqué woodgrain. We recovered it with new vinyl woodgrain contact paper we got at Office Depot. A dark color for the main body and a lighter color for the trim. Actually looked pretty good and lasted a number of years before we sold the car.

That sounds pretty cool, but I had to replace two doors and the ones I used had no wood grain or the trim. So I just painted it all one color. The wood grain added that period character missing from today's cars.
