It's not actually fake chrome, it's real chrome. In automotive they typically use ABS plastic and this is then coated in copper and nickel plating as would be done on say a zinc die casting in an old school car. Then they chrome plate over that. So chrome plating of plastic is actually real chrome plating.
Every 70's option you could ask for in a shade of green that would make Kermit blush. I admit, most 70's wagons with wood paneling are not my thing, I like the 60's ones a bit better, especially before they got smogged and super slow.
Here is my “mid-priced” version of the Country Squire. It’s a 1973 Country Sedan. They stopped using the “Country Sedan” after 1974. It was based on the Galaxie 500 trim level.
We had a Country Squire Wgn that exact color (1st pic), but an earlier model, maybe a 1967. It replaced our 1962 Country Squire Wgn, dark blue w. 390 ci, engine. That '62 I loved and remember fondly. I took my Penna. driver's license test in the '62. And got my first (and only) speeding ticket with it, about a year later.
