The Ford Country Squire is a line of full-size station wagons that was assembled and marketed by Ford. Throughout its entire production run, the Country Squire was the premium station wagon model of the division, sold only in the full-size car range. In use for 41 years, it was the third longest-used car nameplate used by Ford in North America (behind only the Thunderbird and Mustang). Although all Country Squires feature woodgrain body trim, only the first-generation 1950-1951 versions are true "Woodies". To reduce the production cost, for 1952, Ford replaced wood trim with an all-steel body; ever since, exterior body trim has consisted of simulated woodgrain (with varying degrees of coverage on the body).
