Hey there @Squirlz ! I'm sorry to hear that we were not able to accommodate the V at that time. Our guidelines have since changed and the CTS-V wagon is certainly a vehicle we could offer coverage on if everything else checks out. If you would like to shoot me a DM I would be happy to see what we can do now.
Well, he just said "7 wagons", not the "best 7" or the "most valuable 7" - just 7. And yep, there are 7 there, I counted them. So all of us who are demanding that a certain other wagon "belongs on the list" are either pleading that he should have titled it with a larger number than 7, or that our choices to go on his list are better for some reason. Pretty subjective, for sure.
Having said that, I'm going to just say that if I were making a list of my favorite wagons, I would put the best one I owned - a '64 Chevelle 2-door wagon. Pretty rare, but no idea how many they produced. Don't really care anyway. I liked it. Also no idea if one today would be more valuable than a 2-door coupe or sedan. Don't care. I had one and I liked it.
Please don't shoot at me because I didn't pick a Ford or a Pontiac or a Vista Cruiser wagon. I'm not trying to claim that the '64 Chevelle 2-door wagon is the best ever made. All I'm sayin' is that I decided to make a list of "1 wagon that owned once and that I really liked and would still like to this day if I had it back". Agree with my list or disagree with it - I don't care about that either! 😆
Actually, @Longroofjunkie, it's not. The title is "7 wagons that are worth a lot more than their sedan and coupe siblings". It says that these are 7 that, in "#2 (Excellent) condition values are significantly higher than sedans and coupes of the same model". Nowhere, in my reading of it, does it make the claim that these 7 "bring the highest" anything. It not only does NOT say "the highest premium", it doesn't even say these are the only 7 that might bring significantly higher value. It just says, in essence, that here are 7. Yes, you may identify more that could bring more. Yes, you could possibly even find some that bring more than these 7. But what you can't do is claim that the article says things that it doesn't.
Ever watch Matt's Off-Road Recovery videos on YouTube, @Rider79? They have something they call the MORRvaire, which is bodied with a Corvair Wagon. Quite a vehicle! I tend to agree with you that the wagon was the best-looking Corvair, but it kinda ties with the drop-side van/pick-up thingy, whatever they called it. Those were neat also. There's a guy here locally with one that has a 421 Pontiac mounted in the bed...
Yep, it is. But unlike several others who've posted here, I wasn't recommending that it be added to the list of wagons. I was merely talking to Rider79 and comparing how much I liked the Corvair wagons and the pickup. Pretty simple, if you read it right.
Why are we limiting the Volvo to ‘81+? Do the older wagons not bring any more money than their sedan/coupe counterparts? Seems hard to believe that the trend cited here wouldn’t apply across the whole production run.
And, like several other commenters, I'm surprised not to see any BMWs here; I can think of several rare 5-series variants (e.g. E34 530 V8) of which so few wagons were built that they almost certainly go for more than equivalent sedans.
Hey Jeff, why don't you write a follow-up article of "The 16,327 wagons that were worth at least a dime more than their sedan or coupe counterparts throughout history", and include every darned example of every wagon that has EVER sold for more money than ANY sedan? That ought to satisfy everybody! Go ahead, get started - we'll wait...
