We recently shared a blog post honoring the five most expensive cars of 1972. For folks with the budget, all five would have made fine rides back in the day. But, what if you couldn’t get by with a sedan, much less a huge coupe? What if your familial commitments meant committing to a vehicle with some extra space aft of the rear seats, or even another row or seats?
Turns out you could spend some serious coin on wagons back in 1972, too. Here we present the five most expensive, and presumably luxurious, American station wagons of 1972. Note all prices quoted below are as reported in Consumer Guide: Auto Test 1972, and and for models with the 3rd-row seat.
