Clark Griswold purchased a new Wagon Queen Family Truckster for his family's 1983 vacation to Wally World. Clark opted for a fully loaded exterior with genuine simulated wood grain paneling on the sides and hood.
Inside, well...it was pretty basic, lacking some of the creature comforts his family might have appreciated.
Clark traded his wife's nicely maintained Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser for the Family Truckster, which Ellen, his wife, didn't seem to be too thrilled about. Considering the Olds was in great condition at trade in, we're guessing it wasn't used for many vacations over the years, based on the treatment the Family Truckster endured.
