When Roy Brown set out to make a car which looked like nothing before it, he most definitely succeeded. Anyone who knows cars today will immediately recognize this beautiful red and white wagon which is about as American as football and pumpkin pie. After all, the front grille alone has become iconic and hasn’t been successfully duplicated since. Use this American wagon to lead the Independence Day parade in your community or show it off at meetups in your area, because this is a car which people will truly admire.
A nice shine accentuates the straight, original body panels. This ride comes with some nice chrome details typical of cars in late 1950s America, so when everything is shined up it looks amazing in the sun. There are even slight tailfins flanking either side of the rear tailgate, a design cue you just don’t see on cars from other eras. All the factory details are there, plus nice shiny knock-off wheels and wide whitewall tires make for a fun look.
That striking red and white two-tone scheme is replicated for the interior, particularly on the bench seats and door panels. All the original factory equipment is still present, including the steering wheel, gauges, and more. There’s a lot of room in this ride, so you can bring the whole family along for a retro cruise, plus throw a picnic and whatever else you want in the spacious rear cargo.
