Looks odd, most expensive wagon by Ford with the least expensive hubcaps.

It was an inexpensive version of a Country Squire. It has the smallest V-8 and base automatic (2 speed Ford-O-matic) and it is a 6 passenger version.  Power Steering only. 

 

1961 was the first year for a 6 passenger Squire. 1960 and earlier all Country Squires came as 3 seat only. 

1961 is also the first year for a roll down tailgate window. 1960 and earlier Ford wagons used liftgates.

I love the car. I don't know about the wheel coverings. They could be original, but I know it's now popular to slap some dog dishes on for an "automatic authenticity" vibe. Because of this, a set of vintage poverty caps can sometimes sell for more than a set of full wheel covers from the same era.

 

I wish wagons hadn't become pricier than four door sedans. They used to be less. This would be a cool car to own, but I wouldn't want to pay quite that much for it. Kind of the market, I guess.

It was the most expensive series though.  At this point even the least equipped country squire I would lay money on being ordered with whitewalls and full disc caps (not sure if they were standard equipment on them) by any dealer putting this on their lot.  Now special order,  that's a different story.  You were buying the Country squire to be flashy, otherwise you wouldn't have bought one,  a fake wood sided wagon didn't say cheap back in 1960.  Fot that you bought the country sedan or ranch wagon.
