Real or Memorex? 1964 Thunderbird Squire—Taking one of my favorite Thunderbirds, the “Squarebird” of 1964-66, and making it into a classic 1960s Country Squire, was one of my more fun chops in the “early days.” I first had to make it into a four-door, predating the actual 4-door T-bird by three years, and posted a sedan version online first. Then I went further adding the wagon bodystyle and then the “wood” paneling. I would love to see someone build this today for the car show circuit! The rear trunk on these ‘Birds was low enough that the rear bumper/taillight assembly could be kept and a hatch added above it. Cutting the hatch into the roof, a la the Dodge Magnum, would be fine for ease of loading.

Google "long roof" for a website devoted to station wagons. I grew up riding in the back seat inhaling those wonderful fumes through the rear window!
