    New Guy from Trenton, Ohio with a 1964 Daytona Wagonaire

    Sold my 63 Wagonaire 1-1/2 years ago, and been kicking my own butt everyday, so when I saw this one in 2009, and found it for sale in November, I bought it, prior owner was going to FLA for the winter, so he just got home, and I got to bring it home!! 259 V8, PS, Auto and discs.....92XXX miles...been driving the wheels off of her, and it is suppose to have some history with the wagon as well....

    WOW! I can hardly wait (literally) for our historians to get on this.

    My dad ordered a 64 Wagonaire, but it got lost and we ended up with a Daytona. Boy, do I have a soft spot for 64 Wagonaires.

    I can only assume, I saw it last at the Pumpkin Run in 2009, Glenn owned it 9 years and drove it under 1000 miles....I have put 500 miles the last two weeks......

    Nice car, and definitely cool provenance! That would make me want to watch every "Mr. Ed" episode in late '63/early '64 to look for that car!

    OK: I think I found one of the Mr. Ed episodes with this Wagonaire and I am including a link below to it for You Tube. The episode is entitled "Ed the Donkey" and originally aired 02/23/64 during the show's fourth season. The Wagonaire belongs to the Posts' next door neighbors Gordon and Winnie Kirkwood. In this episode, the Wagonaire used is clearly two toned, has the same roof rack, antenna, and the seat material matches; although what you see is in black and white. There may be other episodes with this car, but this is one that I have found. The scene with the Wagonaire begins at the 2:33 mark and continues throughout the episode. Enjoy!

    The only time I remember Alan Young's character Wilbur Post driving a '64 Wagonaire is in an episode where Mr. Ed flies a plane and Wilbur comes driving up quickly and brakes hard in front of the airport tower in an effort to try and do something to get Mr. Ed to land the plane. What were these writers thinking?

    Mr. Ed was always a particular favorite of mine mainly for two reasons. First, it featured Studebakers. As early as age 5, I could tell you Studebakers were used for most of its run. Second, it was a Filmways production. I haven't found a Filmways series that I didn't like.

    Falconwagon: I am envious. I wouldn't know what to do if I saw on the production order "Tag for Filmways - Mr. Ed show." Your car was beautiful then and beautiful now. Furthermore, the gorgeous Connie Hines (Carole Post) actually sat in your backseat!

    What a history! Not many people can claim their car was part of an iconic American TV series. Very cool.

    Congrats on the neat ride. If we ever cross paths at a meet, I must have a photo taken with one of the "Mr. Ed" Studebakers
