1959 Mercury Colony Park

The later part of the fifties saw both Ford and Mercury pursing a marketing campaign to sell the public on the idea that camping was a healthy family fun. They wanted to show the public that all they needed was a station wagon and a few well chosen accessories. The company actively chased the idea with books newspaper and magazine stories that showed folks just enjoying the station wagon life. Below is a PR photo from Mercury in 1959 showing a classic camping scene featuring their nifty new Colony Park.
