I'm surprised how large an area there is over the windshield, are they different than cars in that respect? Looks like a "brow".

Thats the most woodies I have ever seen in one spot. And, yours is a real survivor. I think all of the wagons had that high roof line.

What great pictures! How far away from home was it, and what did you have to do to get that family wagon running? Very, very cool that you drove it there in 'garage condition'.

It was about 60 miles from home.
To get it running....found that the engine was free after cutting the fan belts off the frozen water pumps. Oil looked good (no water) ... pulled the plugs and gave all the cylinders a dose of marvel mystery oil, pulled the radiator to have re-cored while the engine was soaking. Pulled the starter to free up the gear ... replace fuel lines, hoses, inspect fuel tank .... hook up a battery and wow! It started.
So after I know it runs .... replace plugs,points,condenser,cap,rotor,wires,belts,hoses ... all brake lines and hoses, master cylinder, wheel cylinders ... r and r trans. & diff. Fluid...oh and put some used radials on to replace the scary looking bias plys.
I think that's about all I have done to it.

The car was parked in 1964 ... so it had a 50 year nap before it had to drive to Santa Cruz.

Thanks guys, my parents, sister and I had a great time talking to all the people about our family wagon. My sister remembers picknic' s on the tailgate....I heard my Mom telling about camping in the wagon .. my sister slept on the front seat and they had a mattress in back.
I was 2 when it was parked so my memories are seeing it in the garage with so much stuff in it , under it, and on it that you really had to look to know it was there.

What a fantastic car, I really miss all station wagons, especially Woodies. I guess they were replaced by the mini van, not a very good trade off in my opinion. That said, that looks like a great event. Fun for the whole family, cool cars, the pier, the board walk, the ocean, it doesn't get much better than that. I never knew that there were so many Woodies still around. Thank you for sharing the fun, and your cars history.
