History of the Ford Station Wagon



Station wagons dated to the dawn of motoring, where they were also referred to as cargo wagons and depot hacks. They generally featured aftermarket bodies mounted on a car or light-truck chassis and were primarily used for what their name implied: going to a railway station to fetch passengers or cargo and delivering them to a customer, a business, a luxury resort, or hotel. Ford produced its first factory-built station wagon — basically a wooden box with four doors — with the 1929 Model A. Those first Ford station wagons were effectively marketed as light-duty commercial vehicles.
