Interesting car, not certain if it started life as a station wagon or not, and that is why it wasn't put into the station wagon thread.

no dog leg so it as least has coach work with makes it a coach on a wagon conversion. do they could have done the CB thing and put the tall glass the tops of the door on a wagon body or sedan body such as the Seville was. or the consort. but this one looks to be a true extended wheel base coach.
