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.
IIRC, the Country Squires with the faux wood paneling were of a higher trim spec. An all-black wagon might not have as nice an interior, or would have to be special-ordered to attempt at a better interior.

My folks had two Country Squires with the faux wood - 1968 and 1973 (to replace the '68). The 1968 had the 390 and the 1973 had the 351.
