Here Are Some Cool Old Family Wagons for Sale on Autotrader

If you’re looking for a cool family hauler, but you don’t want an SUV like everyone else, you might want to consider a wagon. And if you want an especially cool wagon, well, here’s your chance. I’ve rounded up five cool, old-school wagon models, all of which are way more exciting — and more unique — than any typical modern crossover.

1992 Chevy Caprice Wagon

1992 Chevy Caprice Wagon – $14,985

It’s hard to find full-size wagons in nice shape — but this Caprice is certainly that. Hailing from one of the final model years of the full-size General Motors wagon, 1992, this Caprice has traveled just 36,000 miles from new. It’s finished in white with a gray interior, and it’s listed as a one-owner vehicle on Carfax — no surprise, given the condition. It’s offered by United Auto Exchange in the Chicago area for $14,985.

1991 Honda Accord Wagon

1991 Honda Accord Wagon – $11,900

Although the Honda Accord wagon is long gone from Honda’s product portfolio, older examples live on — and this particular Accord lives well, having traveled just 33,700 miles from new. It’s in fantastic shape and it’s almost certainly the nicest one of these left, with a teal exterior — perfect for its era — and a beige interior. It’s offered by Gold Coast Motors in the Chicago area for $11,900, and it’s unlikely you’ll ever find another 1990s Accord quite like this one. Find a Honda Accord for sale

1981 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

1981 Mercedes-Benz 300TD – $10,500

The Mercedes-Benz 300TD is the diesel-powered wagon that’s developed a cult following, mainly for its impressive longevity and unbelievable simplicity to own and maintain. This 1981 model is a case in point, as it’s listed for $10,500, despite having traveled nearly 300,000 miles. But, on a 300TD, 300,000 miles could be just broken in, assuming it’s been maintained well. If you’re interested, this iconic wagon is offered by a private seller in Utah, and it’s finished in beige with a tan interior. Find a Mercedes-Benz 300TD for sale

1988 Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park

1988 Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park – $8,995

In the world of full-size wagons, the wood-paneled models are among the most desirable — and this Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park is very wood-paneled (or, at least, “faux” wood-paneled). Finished in dark blue with a blue interior, this Colony Park also stands out because it’s traveled just 61,100 miles from new, which is obviously an impressive figure for a 31-year-old car. It’s offered by Jim Babish Auto Sales in Pennsylvania for $8,995. Find a Mercury Grand Maruis for sale

1992 Volvo 240DL Wagon

1992 Volvo 240DL Wagon – $8,995

The Volvo 240 is loved by Volvo enthusiasts, and wagon enthusiasts, as it was the last “old-school” Volvo — featuring rear-wheel drive, boxy styling and a simple interior. This 240DL Wagon comes from the second-to-last model year of this car, and it’s in unusually nice shape for a 240, having traveled just 118,000 miles from new. It’s offered by Pre-Owned Cars in the Los Angeles area for $8,995. Find a Volvo 240DL for sale
