So basically if there are windows in the C pillar then its a wagon, making /\ a wagon.

I drove one (a manual too). It's definitely a wagon & is certainly wicked.

You young whippersnappers
Back in my day, a wagon had a back window that rolled down into the door.

There are a lot of hatchbacks being called wagons in here.

Hell yeah - but did that have the magic swing or retract tailgate too?

Our Ranch Wagon was a beast. Ugly, one block long, vinyl seats, power rear window, and that funky cool tailgate. Oh, and a 351. That made up for a lot of the not so hot features. It could literally keep up with a Corvette/Camaro/Mustang of similar vintage in a 50-80 sprint. Good for burnouts too.

I learned to drive in that thing. Not an experience for the faint of heart, a lot of vehicle to pilot.

Hard to find - prone to death by massive rust (which ours did) or gutting for the motor & trans.
