Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's a very original, possibly even original-owner-driven Chevelle wagon.
The Gawker Server Hamsters have decreed that new galleries shall no longer function, so we're going back, back in time, back to a day when you had to wait for a bunch of full-sized images to load. Apologies to those of you with slow internet connections, but we must do as the Hamsters decree!
This is a type of vehicle that was once as common as the minivan is today: the midsize station wagon. The Concours was one of the lower-level trim levels for the ubiquitous-in-its-day Chevelle station wagon.
This one has the 350-cubic-inch small-block Chevrolet engine, the favored engine of Camaro hoons the world over. Of course, this wagon may well be on its 7th small-block by now, but odds are it still has the original 350.
