I've never been much of a wagon fan but how can a guy not like the Mercs? Especially the standard chassis one? Beautiful...

I really like the 42 Mercury, but I have no money or space for it.

Luckily, mine is not for sale but the value of our old Fords is depressing. I guess the only good thing about that is the insurance is less.

I remember seeing a 1942 maroon Mercury station wagon at the Indy swap meet back in the mid to late 1980's. Wonder if that is the same car. I knew then it was a very rare car.

My '42 maroon Mercury wagon was a regular at the Indy swap meet from mid '80's thru the late '90's.
Still have it, but not driven lately.

The Mercs pictured above came from the Nick Alexander collection. They were all sold at auction several years ago.

I'd work hard to find room for that '50 Monarch with its less busy front end.

42 Merc, must've been your car then! I always enjoyed that swap meet but wasn't married that long and fairly broke back then.

Out of the station wagons that went up for Auction, this is my favourite, a 1942 Mercury Station Wagon. It brought $120,000.

Can I confirm if this was a recent auction or from 2016? I wasn't sure judging by one of the posted comments.
