1923 Ford Model T Station Wagon

Summary

"Station" in the term "station wagon" refers to the railroad depot. Early station wagon buyers were often resort hotels and spas that used the roomy vehicles to shuttle their visitors to and from the train. Ford built the chassis and powertrains for its first wagons, but outside builders provided the bodies. Ford didn't offer complete factory-built station wagons until 1929.
