First year of a new body, first year of the rear scoops to keep dust off the back window...hard to tell, but it looks like it could have the great 289 V8...or even the 240 Six, which would be a rare bird indeed (352, 390 and up V8s would have, at least originally, an emblem behind the front wheels). You can de-code the data plate here. I have a couple of old Ford wagons...the Squire framing was real wood around Di-Noc through '53 and into very early production '54, fiberglass after that.

Have fun.
Thanks GW! I think Mr. Lewis had an "IN" at Ford (his nephew was an engineer at ford ). I've been eyeing this wagon most of my life, so i'm over the roof. It came from the factory with a 352, but had a rebuild at the local Montgomery Wards in 1981(with 21,000 miles. The receipt is in the glove box...i wanna know why the rebuild ?) and they have it being rebuilt as a 390! It doesn't have the jump seats, but is pretty much untouched.
