|Ford built 11,001 of these great wagons, the last of their kind to use real wood trim. They could be had in any of the six exterior colors shown below but only one interior color was available. The Country Squire was only available in the U.S.|
Master Builder Paul Hettick took two of these bodies and turned them into the Masterpieces featured here. I'd like to mention that his models are more accurate representations of a 53 Squire than the Blue 1:1 featured atop the page. Paul's finished works are highly sought after and command premium prices. This one is finished in Fernmist Green and features a highly detailed and mostly scratch-built interior.
Be sure to check out the brochure scan of the interior at the very bottom of this page.
Chemical Cleanup Needed!
Your kit will have already received a 24 hour Bleche-Wite soaking and final detergent scrub & rinse and all the extraneous flash will have been removed. All that you have to do is the final sanding & fitting, prime and paint the the body the color of your choice!
The car on the left is what we get ...The car on the right is what you get :-)
This is Paul's other beautifully finished Squire done accurately in Sandpiper Tan.

And here's the clean-up process...
First all Flash is removed using sanding sticks and various grinding tools...
then, we soak your kit components in a vat of Bleche-Wite for a minimum of 24 hours.
After the Bleche-Wite soak, the components are rinsed and placed in a tub filled with soapy water and scrubbed using a tooth brush to get into all the nooks and crannies.
Last but not least, a fresh water rinse removes the soap residue after which the parts are dried using lint free paper towels.
