I saw a 64 wagon in nice shape yesterday that had the flags and bird emblem on the fender but I couldn’t see was CI it was. There were two old women driving it! Does the emblem belong there and could it be a 427 car?

In 1964 the 390, 406, and 427 equipped cars all had the T-bird winged emblem for sure.
Maybe even the 352 4v.

It just seamed odd to me that a wagon with wood would have the emblem.

FoMoCo has loved to broadcast it's powerplants via emblems since the original flat head V-8 in 1932.

My ma had a '64 Country Sedan with bird and flag emblems on it. Hers was a 390, 4V, and duals. Even had gold painted valve covers. I took my driving test in that thing. I did my first burn out in it and she would light up those bias-plys at will.

'64 Country Sedan

Thats what this was! It was at a station filling up and by the time I turned around and went back it was gone. It also had something like Classic Auto Library or maybe it was Antique? I have to try and look it up!

The Galaxie platform wagon without the Squire (woodie) option was called the Country Sedan. It sound like the one you spotted was a Country Squire. The one I grew up with was sky blue with a dark blue interior. Some of the interior and exterior trim pieces actually had the Galaxie 500 monikers here and there. It even had the fancy chrome star bursts around the reverse lights. Even in '64, the second row seats were a 40/60 split so them ricers and GM ain't got nothing on FoMoCo. The fold down third seat closed flush with the floor without removing any parts. The only problem my dad ever crabbed about was that the 390 would eat starters. It was a victim of the oil embargo of the early 70s and the price of high-test fuel being around a half buck, Pop said it had to go.
