        My Aunt and Uncle had a 1970 Kingswood (not the Estate with the woodgrain). Navy blue, like almost all the cars my Uncle owned. It was a few years old when I remembered it, but I loved that styling.

          Oh yes... Those were the "Brady Bunch" rides of the neighborhood in their day... Loved it when all my little buddies and I could pile in the scout masters and ride together to the camp outs...

              I bought most of these, including this chase found "in the wild".

                We had a dark green '69 Kingswood Estate when I was a kid... You know what color I'd like to see them issue it in. Ours had the exposed headlights and a 4-barrel 427 with dual exhaust. When we got it, I thought it was "neat" because it had the woodgrain applique, unlike the maroon '66 Bel Air wagon it replaced. When I got a little older and became more of a car nut, I realized what that "427" badge on the fender meant. I loved that car, especially when my dad got in a playful mood (when my mom wasn't in the car, of course) and he'd blow away some high school kid in his small block Camaro, Mustang, or Duster. Picture it: a middle-aged guy in a dark green "woody"station wagon pulls up next to you at a traffic light, looks over at your pride and joy, and laughs. Game on! Then, said green/woodgrain proceeds to (to use my dad's words) suck you up his tail pipe! I distinctly remember a certain bright green metallic '70 El Camino sporting an L-88 hood scoop losing a run-in with our wagon. A couple of miles later, he pulled into the parking lot where we had stopped and gave us the line made popular in a Dodge Magnum commercial about 12 years ago: "Man, what do you have in that thing"? Dad opened the hood and showed him the 427 with the low-restriction air cleaner (but no headers), and the kid just about fell over. That was fun...

                (If anyone here happens to have an example of the Ultra Red exposed-headlight '69 Kingswood Estate like the one shown above - or even better an Ultra Raw one - that he'd be willing to part with at a reasonable price, please let me know. I have and Ultra Red one with the hidden headlights that I'd be willing to trade. Or, in trade for the Ultra Raw version, how about an open Ultra Raw '66 Impala SS? Sorry, but I bought it already opened - I'm a "completeist" when it comes to the '66 Impala SS, and have over a dozen examples of that model. The wagon takes precedence for me.)

                      I was very impressed with this wagon when it first hit the pegs. These were the first 4 varies I was able to find in the wild...




                      This was my most recent find I haven't opened yet...
