This is a somewhat rare model; only 15,186 were made. It survived for only one-year - the prototype for the '57 Parklane never made it to production, and it was replaced by the 1957 Del Rio. As a 2-door hardtop wagon, it was a direct competitor to the Chevy Nomad (and it was successful sales-wise - in comparison, only 7,886 Nomads were sold). It started off as a Ranch Wagon, with the addition of the distinctive side trim and other pieces of the top-of-the-line Fairlane series (Sunliner, Crown Victoria, Club Sedan, and Town Sedan).
